Medical Education

Welcome to the Levine Children's Hospital

We provide the entire range of pediatrics services – from primary care to specialty – in a child-friendly, child-focused, family-centered atmosphere. The integration of our pediatricians with the medical and surgical pediatric specialists provides a unique and challenging learning experience.

Levine Children's Hospital blends the services and strengths of the entire Charlotte medical community to offer the highest quality of care to our patients. As the largest children's hospital in the region, we attract physicians who are national leaders in clinical advances.

They, along with our nurses, nurse practitioners, social workers, dietitians, child life specialists, respiratory therapists and other care providers, are all specially trained in caring for pediatric patients of all ages. We also constantly collaborate with our extensive network of primary care pediatricians to ensure the best possible care for each patient.

We have been named a Best Children's Hospital by U.S. News & World Report five times, most recently in five specialties: cardiology and heart surgery, neonatology, nephrology, neuroscience and orthopedics. While we are proud of this achievement, we are equally proud of our family centered care approach, where children and their families are our partners in healthcare.

As a pediatric resident, you will work closely with physicians, nurses and other staff, and you'll be seen as a valuable part of the medical team. Your hand-on experience and education will lead to excellence in all of the six core competencies. We will continually work to make your three years here first and foremost a great learning experience, but also an enjoyable time in Charlotte.
