Division Highlights - General Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine

The Division of General Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine provides outstanding outpatient care for children 24 hours a day, every day of the year.

Our research focuses on family-centered care, quality improvement and systems redesign.

2014 Highlights

  • Three Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine Clinics received UW Health patient experience awards in 2014. The 20 S. Park and East clinic each received a quarterly award; the University Station clinic received both a quarterly and a semi-annual award.
  • The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) re-appointed Elizabeth Cox, MD, PhD, to serve on its Advisory Panel on Improving Healthcare Systems. In addition, Dr. Cox and her research collaborators released two HIPxChange toolkits on family-centered rounds and on patient engagement in patient-centered outcomes research.
  • John Frohna, MD, MPH, was elected into the Alpha Omega Alpha Society (AOA), a professional medical organization that recognizes and advocates for excellence in scholarship and the highest ideals in the profession of medicine.
  • All UW Health primary care clinics are now participating in Reach Out and Read, the early literacy promotion program for which Dipesh Navsaria, MPH, MSLIS, MD, serves as the Wisconsin medical director. In addition, Dr. Navsaria was the primary author of the Wisconsin chapter of the AAP’s statement on public insurance coverage for children.
