General Pediatrics and Adolescent Health
Generating, applying, and disseminating new knowledge which contributes to the optimal health, well-being, and life course of all children and adolescents.
We provide general pediatric primary care as well as specialty care in adolescent health. Areas of expertise and interest include healthy youth development, positive parenting, care coordination for children and youth with chronic conditions, advancing health equity among vulnerable youth and under-resourced populations, and addressing social determinants of health.
Faculty pursue a wide range of research interests. Insuring that our research informs practice, policy, and programming is a Division priority. We strongly believe that our work must meet community needs, in community settings.
Our interdisciplinary fellowship training programs prepare health professionals for academic and public health leadership roles in child and adolescent health.
