Pediatric Residency

(757) 668-7249
Residency training in pediatrics at CHKD in Norfolk, VA, is an integral part of the Department of Pediatrics of Eastern Virginia Medical School.

Pediatric Residency Program

The program supports 66 residents, including three chief residents. The chief residents play a very active role in the education of our residents and medical students. Each chief resident serves as an Instructor in Pediatrics and spends about 50 percent of their time in a clinical-practice setting.

Established at CHKD in 1962, the fully accredited Residency Training Program is designed to provide a broad educational experience in all aspects of pediatric medicine. Pediatric residents develop sound clinical judgment through personal responsibility for the care of healthy and sick children and through closely supervised educational and clinical experiences.

Over the course of three years, pediatric residents become proficient in the diagnosis and management of acute and chronic illness and gain experience in preventive pediatrics and health maintenance.
