Subspecialty Teaching & Affiliated Faculty

Under the mentorship of an ever-expanding team of more than 100 medical and surgical pediatric subspecialists, residents at GHS receive training that will prepare them for general practice, academic medicine or the fellowship of their choosing. With more than 30 specialties represented, Children’s Hospital of Greenville Health System (GHS) offers more comprehensive “whole child” care than many of the country’s major medical centers. With only a single fellowship in the Department of Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics, our residents gain invaluable clinical experiences through one-on-one teaching with subspecialty attendings while on electives.
