Welcome to the Pediatric Residency Program at Memorial University Medical Center (MUMC) in Savannah, Ga. We are committed to training highly qualified pediatric generalists in an academic hospital setting. We offer a full range of clinical experience from birth to adolescence. Our house staff works closely with world-class general pediatricians and pediatric subspecialists in hematology/oncology, immunology/allergy, cardiology, gastroenterology, infectious diseases, endocrinology, neonatology, neurology, developmental/behavioral medicine, neurosurgery, orthopedics, and pediatric surgery. Affiliated with Mercer University School of Medicine and the Medical College of Georgia, our program's house staff participates in teaching medical students and conducting clinical research.
The Dwaine & Cynthia Willett Children's Hospital of Savannah is located within MUMC and is a vital component of our regional healthcare organization. It is comprised of 41 general pediatric beds, 10 pediatric critical care beds, 20 intensive care beds, and 24 intermediate care beds in a Level III neonatal intensive care nursery. In addition, there are 36 newborn bassinets to accommodate MUMC's 2,500+ deliveries per year. Approximately 4,000 patients are seen monthly in the Willett Children's Hospital Outpatient Center in general, subspecialty, and rehabilitation pediatrics.
There is extensive community support for the Willett Children's Hospital, including a major effort on the part of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. The Willett Children's Hospital is an active participant in many community agencies, local and regional health departments, and urban and rural health projects.
In addition to providing world-class pediatric healthcare services, Savannah is a great place to live. It is the site of one of the largest historic districts in the United States. Located just 20 minutes from the Atlantic Ocean, Savannah offers year-round recreational opportunities and sporting events. We also have dozens of museums, multiple theater companies, and monthly arts and entertainment festivals.
We think you will be as enthusiastic about our pediatric residency and our outstanding city as we are.
