Overview

The Division of General Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine provides outstanding care for children 24 hours a day, every day of the year—in the emergency department, inpatient wards, and outpatient clinics, and through coordination with community agencies.

Our faculty teach medical students, nursing students, and residents through block rotations and weekly resident continuity clinics. We use a variety of teaching modes, and are guided by specific educational objectives whenever possible.

We also foster research collaboration within and outside the department, encourage presentations at regional and national meetings, and support efforts to secure research funding.
