Pediatrics residents work with children in a variety of settings at Children's Hospital of The King's Daughters (CHKD).

Pediatrics Residency

Acquiring the skills to care for all children, enhancing knowledge through education and research, and effecting change by leadership and advocacy at Virginia's only free-standing children's hospital.

Go beyond the basics

Gain experience in unique aspects of pediatric training, including advocacy, leadership, global health, ultrasound, trauma, quality improvement and public health. Our rotations, research opportunities and conferences and activities set residents up for success.

Build an advanced set of skills, including how to deliver bad news to families by practicing with standardized patients and how to handle emergencies by participating mock-code simulations.

“Our attendings and staff truly care about our clinical and academic progression and sow into each of us individually. It has truly been a joy to train here at EVMS and CHKD.”
