About Our Program

Why Marshall

Our pediatric hospital medicine fellowship is the only one in our area as there are no other programs in West Virginia.

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.

Our Mission

The mission of the Marshall University School of Medicine Pediatric Hospital Medicine Fellowship is to train fellows to deliver comprehensive medical care to hospitalized children. In addition to core expertise managing the clinical problems of acutely ill, hospitalized patients, fellows will be taught to enhance the performance of hospitals and health care systems through teaching, scholarly activity, quality/process improvement, efficient health care resource utilization, and leadership.
