The Division of Pediatric Surgery takes pride in an ongoing commitment to personal surgical care for children (of all ages) as central to the overall divisional mission of education and service. Headquartered in the MCV Department of Surgery and CHoR, surgical clinics are located throughout central Virginia with in-hospital surgical care provided at MCV Hospitals and three community sites in the greater Richmond area. Faculty extend their dedication in caring for surgical needs of children to underserved regions internationally, ranging from Belize to Jamaica, and also serve prominent roles nationally in pediatric trauma and critical care, surgical simulation, and minimally invasive surgery, with newly expanded efforts in pediatric cancer surgery.
We offer training opportunities for medical and paramedical students and residents in general surgery, pediatrics and other fields.
Residents complete pediatric surgery rotations at the PGY-2 and PGY-4 levels, and have the option to participate in international health care programs. We also offer expanded opportunities for education in surgical skills using the simulation center at McGlothlin Medical Education Center.
Additionally, we sponsor a yearly endowed Templeton Lectureship in Pediatric Surgery and Trauma.General Surgery Residency Program
