Program Leadership

Welcome to the family of Pediatric Hospitalist Medicine! Thank you for your interest in the Pediatric Hospitalist Medicine fellowship at Marshall University. It is a very exciting time to begin your career in PHM. Health care as a whole is being influenced by societal demands, technological advancement, and changes within academic health centers. To prepare you to meet the demands of this evolving system, our training program offers a breadth of pediatric hospital medicine that includes general pediatrics, subspecialty pediatrics, leadership, advocacy and scholarly activity. 

The department is committed to providing a supportive and nurturing environment in which fellows flourish. The diversity of the faculty, residents and fellows assures an exciting learning environment that thrives on challenging questions and new approaches to pediatric issues.

I challenge you to discover for yourself what our program has to offer. I hope you will find the time to visit our program and look forward to meeting you at that time.
