Welcome and thank you for your interest in the Pediatric Hospitalist Medicine fellowship at Marshall University in Hoops Family Children’s Hospital at Cabell Huntington Hospital. Hoops Family Children’s Hospital is a children’s hospital within Cabell Huntington Hospital. We are affiliated with the Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine and the Pediatrics and Medicine/Pediatrics residencies have a total of 8 residents/year, which provides our fellows great opportunities for teaching, mentorship and leadership.
The Department of Pediatrics serves as a referral center for pediatric patients from more than 29 counties throughout West Virginia, eastern Kentucky, and southern Ohio. The Department of Pediatrics represents the region’s most comprehensive team for meeting the health care needs of infants, children and adolescents.
While we are a new program, we started our first two fellows in July 2020, our fellowship offers a competitive educational, clinical and scholarly program. It is the only PHM fellowship in the tri-state area, as there are no other programs in West Virginia or Kentucky. Our pediatric department leadership is strongly committed to providing top notch education. Our program earned initial accreditation from the ACGME in September 2020.
While most of you likely have not visited Huntington, it is truly a hidden gem. Nestled along the scenic Ohio River, Huntington is the perfect mixture of college town and river port that is a thriving metropolitan area with southern hospitality.
Thank you for considering Marshall University at Hoops Family Children’s Hospital for your fellowship training. We hope the information provided is helpful to you. Please reach out with any further questions or interest.
Pediatric Hospitalist Medicine Family at Marshall University
Our pediatric hospital medicine fellowship is the only one in our area as there are no other programs in West Virginia or in our adjacent state, Kentucky.
While we are a newer program, we are in an extremely strong position to provide an excellent fellowship experience. Our pediatric department leadership is strongly committed to providing top-notch education for trainees at all levels. This has resulted in our pediatric residency program being known as "small but mighty" due to our consistently strong board pass rates and impressive resident involvement in scholarly activity.
Most of our residents have presented not only at local and regional research conferences but also at the Pediatric Academic Societies Meeting (PAS) and have Pubmed ID listed publications prior to their graduation. During the last four years, we have had 7-9 presentations accepted at PAS each year.
