Pediatric Residency
Program at St. Vincent

Welcome from our Director

Thank you for your interest in our pediatric residency program at Peyton Manning Children's Hospital. We recognize that finding the right residency program is one of the most important decisions you will make in your career and we are happy you are taking the time to learn what makes PMCH so unique.
Our busy free-standing Children's hospital, strong academic program, diverse patient population, cutting-edge resources, and engaged faculty prepare you for whatever you hope to do - whether it is a competitive subspecialty fellowship or general pediatric practice. And because we do not have our own fellowship programs, the residents learn directly from faculty and do not have to compete with other learners. As you are researching programs, we recognize that you want to find a place in which you will be happy. As a smaller program, we are proud of the close-knit and collegial relationships that our residents and faculty enjoy and we strive to maintain a good work-life balance.
Residency is an exciting and challenging time. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions and we look forward to hopefully meeting you soon.
