The Department of Pediatrics honors current and former members of the department who have gone above and beyond in their careers through named lectureships. These important lectureships are designed to strengthen the abilities of physicians practicing pediatric medicine in areas such as patient care, healthcare research, medical education, public health, and innovation. Our lectureships create space for comradery and community among faculty, staff, and trainees.
Funds donated to these lectureships go directly to providing high-quality education for all faculty, staff, and trainees in the Department of Pediatrics by inviting distinguished lecturers. Lectureships are accredited and provide continuing medical education credits for faculty.
