State-of-the-art Pediatric Services

The Department of Pediatrics at UT Southwestern Medical Center has three major missions: to provide the highest quality patient care, acquire new knowledge by pursuing unanswered scientific questions, and educate students and health care professionals.

Our department has a number of unique resources that arise out of our longstanding, integrated, and valued collaboration with Children's Health. These include a Children's Clinical Research Program and an extensive Continuing Medical Education Program.

Many of our faculty members are engaged in interdisciplinary educational programs locally, nationally, and internationally, creating opportunities for students, residents, fellows, and other faculty to expand their experience. Members of our department have also established extensive interdisciplinary research programs locally and nationally.

The education of medical students, residents, postdoctoral fellows, and other health professionals is one of our top priorities. We are passionate about transmitting knowledge, instilling excitement for learning, and translating and refining questions that arise during the process. Each division within Pediatrics has specific educational goals for students and residents, and most divisions have fellowship programs, which provide advanced training the chosen subspecialty.
