We advance the health of infants, children and adolescents worldwide through innovative medical care, research, training and advocacy. With 366 pediatricians and pediatric subspecialists our department is one of the largest at the School of Medicine. As a leader in pediatric medicine, we depend on the contributions of a large support staff, whose expertise and dedication serve to facilitate the department's administrative, clinical, education and research operations. In partnership with Lucile Packard Children's Hospital, our programs and services offer state-of-the-art primary and specialty care. Our researchers and clinicians collaborate across the bench-to-bedside-to-backyard continuum, transforming their discoveries into the most effective diagnostics, treatments and prevention therapies available today. As part of Stanford University, we prepare future leaders in pediatric medicine by offering broad-based training in general pediatrics, critical care and pediatric subspecialties within a variety of ambulatory, inpatient and community settings. Tightly integrated with our educational activities, these programs provide hands-on learning to equip our graduates with the skills they'll need as future advocates of children's health.
