We have a large and diverse patient population. We are the only facility offering tertiary pediatric care in the eastern third of North Carolina (29 counties), and patients seek both general and subspecialty services at our institution. We care for over 60,000 patients in the outpatient setting yearly. Our Outpatient, Ward, NICU, and PICU services provide care for children with a broad spectrum of illnesses and clinical problems. Residents leave our program well-prepared for general practice or subspecialty training.
We are looking for residents who demonstrate compassion toward others, a desire to learn, and an ability to work well as a team member with other residents and staff.
Faculty at our institution have generally chosen to be at East Carolina because of the opportunities for teaching in the setting of providing patient care. Residents find our faculty approachable and excited about working with medical learners.
The greatest concentration of our graduates is in North Carolina, but our graduates are all over the United States. Most of our residents go into general practices in community settings, but about 20-25% of our residents have gone on to fellowship training in highly competitive subspecialty programs. In addition, several former residents work in academic settings as general pediatricians and in the public health arena.
