HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) – Marshall University’s School of Medicine will welcome two fellows to a new pediatric hospital medicine program launching this summer.

The Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine says the two-year program focuses on developing physicians at hospitals in the Huntington area who will lead care for juvenile patients.

University officials told The Herald-Dispatch that the Pediatric Hospital Medicine specialty was established at the university in 2016, partly to address shortages in the pediatric care workforce. Dr. Jessica L. Ford and Dr. Patricia A. Tran will be the inaugural fellows when they begin in July.
