USF Developmental Medicine Program

Vision

The USF Neurodevelopmental Medicine Program will become a national model of excellence in clinical services, research, and education for children from birth to 18 years of age. This program is the result of a coordinated effort between the USF Colleges of Medicine and Public Health, and includes specialty services provided by the USF Departments of Pediatrics and Psychiatry. This multidisciplinary framework is essential for the provision of superior comprehensive care to patients and families. The USF Neurodevelopmental Medicine Clinic will be a “one-stop shop” where families can be assured that all of the chronic health care needs of their child, including neurodevelopmental, behavioral, and/or medical, will be addressed simultaneously to create an individualized and effective course of treatment. The Neurodevelopmental Medicine faculty and staff intend to transform how clinicians in the new millennium envision and deliver developmental care.
