With education central to our mission, the Department of Pediatrics at VCU is dedicated to training and supporting the next generation of pediatricians. We offer a comprehensive and customizable pediatrics residency, a combined med-peds residency in collaboration with the Department of Internal Medicine and 11 fellowships.
We aim to support and empower medical students who are interested in pediatrics by hosting them during M3 clerkships and M4 elective rotations. Students learn alongside residents, with opportunities to explore general pediatrics and subspecialized care.
For premedical and medical students, the Jack's Summer Scholars Program fosters mentorship in pediatrics and neonatal medicine. Students are exposed to a broad range of research and clinical activities in the NICU, surgical specialties, hospital medicine and other areas related to neonatal care.
We encourage our residents to maintain a healthy work-life balance, and Richmond, affectionately known as RVA, is a wonderful place to engage in that well-rounded lifestyle. As the capital of Virginia since 1779, Richmond attracts students, faculty and staff from around the globe.
Richmond provides stimulating activities while maintaining its intimate feel and unique vibe. Vibrant neighborhoods offer distinct, diverse experiences, with no shortage of art galleries, museums, music venues, restaurants, breweries and parks. For the outdoor enthusiast, you can’t beat the offerings in the city’s riverfront parks and urban wilderness areas such as white-water rafting, hiking, mountain biking and festivals.Learn more about living in RVA
