Welcome to the University of Wisconsin Department of Pediatrics
The Department of Pediatrics at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health is a vibrant academic department comprising more than 200 faculty in 16 subspecialty divisions.
Our education programs meet the needs of learners at all levels: undergraduates, medical students, residents, fellows, postgraduate trainees, and practicing health care professionals. Our graduating residents enter desirable primary care practices or top-quality subspecialty fellowships in academic medical centers. We are also committed to the professional development of our faculty and pediatricians across the state. As such, we host conferences, Grand Rounds, and other live events focused on cutting-edge topics in pediatric and adolescent medicine.
Our basic, translational, and clinical research programs aim to generate new knowledge to improve the health of children. In FY22, we had more than $52 million in extramural grants supporting our work, and we ranked No. 9 in NIH research funding among medical school pediatric departments in the Blue Ridge Institute for Medical Research 2022 rankings.
Our investigators collaborate with research partners across the UW School of Medicine and Public Health and the broader UW–Madison campus. We also provide ample opportunities for learners to engage in research.
We provide a full range of pediatric inpatient and outpatient clinical services in partnership with colleagues from other medical and surgical subspecialties. Clinical facilities include the state-of-the-art American Family Children’s Hospital, community hospitals UnityPoint Health – Meriter and SSM Health St. Mary’s Hospital – Madison, and outreach clinics statewide.
We are dedicated to continued excellence and growth, and we appreciate your interest in our department. To learn more about our work and our accomplishments, please browse our website, view our annual reports, or contact us directly.
