University Pediatrics - Rutledge Tower
We are accepting new patients! MUSC Children’s Health pediatricians are conveniently located in downtown Charleston, South Carolina. We provide primary care for children, from birth through 18 years. The practice is a NCQA-recognized Patient-Centered Medical Home and is staffed by pediatric residents and pediatric attending faculty members through the Division of General Pediatrics.
Residents are doctors who have completed medical school and are pursuing advanced training in pediatrics. Residents write prescriptions, diagnose and treat medical problems, and help you and your child to live a healthier life. Families may not see the same resident at all their visits, depending on their training schedules, but we try to have the same resident see your child for each well check and follow-up appointment.
Residents are closely supervised by attending doctors, who are board certified in pediatrics after completing their advanced training. Attending doctors participate in every visit at Rutledge Tower and are always available if you, your child, or the resident doctors have questions or concerns.
