Procedural Exposure

As a program that operates without fellows, our residents have ample opportunities to be hands-on in performing procedures on their patients. Residents also utilize the Carilion Clinic Center for Simulation, Research and Patient Safety (SIM Lab), an 11,000-square-foot training facility that includes a birthing suite and neonate care area, single patient room, operating room, trauma bay, debriefing rooms, classrooms and clinical skills lab. Prior to graduation, pediatric residents are required to obtain competency in the following procedures: 

  • Bag mask ventilation
  • Bladder catheterization
  • Circumcision (may opt out to observe only)
  • Delivery room resuscitation
  • Foreign body removal
  • Incision and drainage of superficial abscesses
  • Immunizations
  • IV line placement
  • Intubation of neonates
  • Laceration repair
  • Lumbar puncture
  • Reduction of simple dislocations
  • Splinting of fractures
  • Umbilical artery/vein catheterization
