Division Highlights - Hospital Medicine

The Division of Pediatric Hospital Medicine provides exceptional coordinated, family-centered inpatient general pediatric care. The division also houses the Pediatric Complex Care Program and the Pediatric Diagnostic Referral Clinic, and participates in delivery of sedation services within American Family Children’s Hospital. 

Our scholarly work focuses on system improvements related to patient- and family-centered care, education in inpatient pediatric medicine, care of children with medical complexity and global health.
