CHoR Adolescent Medicine Specialists Collaborate with Carilion's Pediatric Residency Program
Friday, July 25, 2014
Dr. Richard Brookman, professor and chief of CHoR's Division of Adolescent Medicine, has been named the adolescent medicine rotation director for the Carilion Clinic/Roanoke Memorial Hospital Pediatric Residency Program.
Carilion's pediatric residency program began in 2012 and until this recent affiliation the program did not have board certified adolescent medicine specialists.
Carilion's second-year pediatric residents will now spend two weeks on CHoR's adolescent health service supervised by Drs. Richard Brookman and Stephanie Crewe. The residents will also spend two weeks in school-based, adolescent and adolescent gynecology clinics in Roanoke. Dr. Brookman will travel to Roanoke twice a year to present to the residents.
"I made my first visit on July 25 and had a very positive reception by the residents and faculty," said Dr. Brookman.
"I look forward to this affiliation and the opportunity to share 40 years of adolescent health care experience with this developing residency program."
