Our Program

In 2016, Mercy Health – Northern Region expanded on its tradition of excellence and established our Pediatric Residency Program at Mercy Health – St. Vincent Medical Center/ Mercy Health Children’s Hospital.  Our program offers opportunities for growth while providing the required supervision and mentoring needed to become an excellent pediatrician. Residents have the opportunity to be completely responsible for the care of patients while under direct supervision of attending physicians. Additionally, residents will serve as mentors for medical students and colleagues on a daily basis. There are opportunities for residents to have interactions with fellows in various sub-specialties. Residents will work alongside excellent clinical faculty that have been recognized both locally and nationally as the best in their respective fields.
