The Department of Pediatrics seeks to optimize the physical, psychosocial and mental needs of children and communities in our Tristate Appalachian region. Several research opportunities exist at Marshall University, and collaboration within and between departments and schools is strongly encouraged. The mission of the Appalachian Clinical and Translational Science Institute at Marshall University (ACTSI) is to advance research and education to improve the health of Central Appalachia. The ACTSI coordinates clinical and translational research activities throughout the Marshall University healthcare community and with community health partners.
Residents are encouraged to work with their program director, mentor and any varied collaborators of their choice with the goal of improving both knowledge and health care. Projects that receive selection for presentation at local, state, regional and national meetings are supported with travel monies for attendance at meetings and any costs associated with the presentation.
