WELCOME TO THE UW DEPARTMENT OF PEDIATRICS!
The Department of Pediatrics at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health is a vibrant academic department comprising over 175 faculty in seventeen subspecialty divisions.
Our education programs meet the needs of learners at all levels: undergraduates, medical students, residents, fellows, postgraduate trainees and practicing healthcare professionals. Our graduating residents enter desirable primary care practices or top-quality subspecialty fellowships in academic medical centers.
Our basic, translational and clinical research programs aim to generate new knowledge to improve the health of children. In FY18, we had over $34 million in extramural grants supporting our work, and were ranked twelfth in National Institutes of Health research funding among medical school pediatric departments.
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’s 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.
