Overview

We are a diverse group of clinicians, educators, and researchers who unite to advance child health. We value equity, advocacy, excellence, and innovation as we strive to promote compassionate, evidence-based care. We approach our work with joy and humility, engaging in community partnerships, striving for social justice, addressing the unique and evolving needs of every child, and shaping future generations of experts in pediatric care and research.

Vision:

We will advance child health at the local, regional, national, and international levels by:

  • Fostering professional development and creating an inclusive environment that attracts and retains diverse and excellent faculty and staff.
  • Striving for universal access to comprehensive, evidence-based, culturally congruent, and compassionate care in partnership with our diverse families and communities.
  • Training future generations of pediatric experts through excellence in mentorship and medical education.
  • Leveraging the broad expertise of our faculty to engage in innovative scientific discovery, and translate new knowledge into practice to address the evolving needs of pediatric care and population health.
  • Partnering with communities to address the social determinants of health and to collaboratively intervene on the policies and factors that influence these determinants.
