Pediatrics Residency Program

Welcome to Navicent Health/Mercer University Pediatrics Residency Program.

Hello and thank you for visiting our website. We are happy to welcome you to our campus and our program. The Department of Pediatrics at Mercer University's Macon Campus uses The Children's Hospital of the Medical Center of Central Georgia as its primary clinical teaching site. Exposure to all aspects of the discipline of pediatrics is available. Our goal is to help medical students develop into independent functional physicians committed to a life time of learning and curiosity. While we hope that some will pursue academics careers and formally expand current knowledge, we want all of our trainees to develop the tools to take a scholarly approach to practice in a clinic or private setting. Like our house staff, our program continues to evolve both as a result of new trends in adult education and the specific needs of the individuals who elect to train with us. We recognize that each of us learns in a different manner and at a different pace.

These next three years should be amongst the most challenging and rewarding of your career. The work will be difficult for sure, but the rewards in personal growth will be tremendous. As a faculty, we will assist our residents in acquiring the knowledge required to successfully practice pediatrics and lead balanced professional and personal lives. A Socratic method of learning is desirable with the expectation that trainees form clear questions, review available resources and engage the faculty in conversation that will clarify issues. Those who are eager to apply themselves to the task at hand will have all the support they desire.
