Pediatrics Residency Program

Welcome to Navicent Health/Mercer University Pediatrics Residency Program.

Hello and thank you for your interest in our Pediatric Residency Program. We appreciate you taking the time to explore our website.

Here at Atrium Health Navicent, Beverly Knight Olson Children’s Hospital our Residents are exposed to all aspects of the discipline of pediatrics. They train in a state-of-the-art facility that houses a Pediatric Emergency Room, Pediatric Operating Room, Pediatric Radiological Services and a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit with the latest technology and equipment all under one roof.

Our faculty and house staff are dedicated to the care of children and we take pride in being a small, family-oriented pediatric program nestled in the heart of historic Downtown Macon.

Our Residency Program is uniquely structured to allow our Residents “hands-on”, interactive inpatient and outpatient training that is rigorous, stimulating, and nurturing; yet challenging, rewarding, and will prove to be the most memorable three years of your career. In addition, our Program continues to evolve and expand as a result of new trends in medical education, virtual learning opportunities, and the special interests and career goals of our Residents.

As a faculty, we are readily available to mentor and assist our Residents in acquiring the knowledge and skills required to successfully deliver pediatric services in private practice, subspecialties, and academic careers all the while balancing professional and personal lives. Our engaging team of educators are dedicated and committed to your academic success as you learn, train, prepare for the Pediatric Board Exam, and work alongside your peers as an integral provider of care services to the children of Central and South Georgia.

Lastly, you are welcome to come and tour our facility, meet our faculty and Residents, and enjoy the wonderful sights that the City of Macon has to offer. I personally will be your tour guide as you visit and experience the rich culture and joys of southern living. A tour of our City will make you scratch your head and wonder why it took you so long to get here!

I wish you every success as a future Pediatrician,

Edward K. Clark, MD, FAAP
Thomas B. and Doris E. Black Professor and Chair
