Residency Overview

An integral part of the Medical University of South Carolina, the MUSC Residency Programs in Pediatrics and Internal Medicine and Pediatrics are devoted to training the next generation of young physicians, delivering academically and medically equipped leaders to the field of pediatrics. Our residents develop the knowledge and skills necessary to become not only excellent clinicians today, but also versatile pediatricians of tomorrow.

Constructed in 1987, MUSC Children's Hospital is South Carolina's largest and most comprehensive pediatric health care center. As the region's top referral center, MUSC Children's Hospital exposes our residents to a vast array of diagnoses that range from the straightforward to the rare and complex. MUSC Department of Pediatrics ResidentMUSC Children's Hospital houses the only Level III neonatal intensive care unit in the region, where the tiniest newborns receive state-of-the-art care. Our pediatric intensive care unit is staffed exclusively by trained pediatric intensivists, respiratory therapists and specialized nurses. With our location in downtown Charleston, South Carolina, our residents learn to deliver medical excellence in providing care to children with a wide spectrum of cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds.

MUSC Department of Pediatrics ResidentHouse officers are selected on the basis of academic record, letters of recommendation and personal interviews. Our residents develop an intrinsic sense of pride in the program and confidence in their training and outlook. By limiting the size of the program, residents experience the evolution of their medical skills and training in a personal and professional environment, where they are truly the next great pediatrician, and not just another resident.
