Pediatrics - Macon Campus

Children's Hospital The Department of Pediatric Education at the Mercer University School of Medicine was established in the early 1980's when Mercer University started a School of Medicine with the unique mission of training physicians dedicated to primary care. The Department has experienced phenomenal growth in expansion of the faculty and in the development of the Children's Hospital at Navicent Health. In 1995, the Pediatric Residency Program was launched.

The Pediatric faculty invites you to assess the pediatric residency program at the Children's Hospital. Our program is designed to provide the experience and clinical skills needed to excel in general pediatrics and is consistent with the primary care focus of Mercer University School of Medicine. Our full time, part time, and community faculties represent a mix of generalists and specialists to assure a well-balanced program that will prepare you for the world of pediatric medicine.

The primary teaching site is the Children's Hospital at Navicent Health, a national leader among regional community teaching hospitals. Clinical faculty include the pediatric subspecialties associated with a Children's hospital as well as a strong general pediatric section. All teaching and training is directed at developing a firm foundation in general pediatrics.
