The Division of General Pediatrics

The Division of General Pediatrics at the University of South Florida manages all areas of child care from birth to age 21. Our pediatricians provide a family-centered approach to general pediatric care by providing you and your child a high quality medical home. Our staff includes medical assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, resident physicians, attending physicians and other practitioners, many of whom speak English and Spanish.

Resident physicians are doctors who have completed medical school training and are spending three to four additional years learning the specialty of pediatrics or internal medicine-pediatrics. Residents are always under the supervision of an attending physician. Our inpatient services include newborn service, consultations and admissions to Tampa General Hospital and All Children's Hospital. As part of integrated services we offer an Internal Medicine-Pediatric clinic that assists with the transition to adult medicine care.

Our focus is on establishing a trusting partnership with you and your family so that you can make informed decisions about the health and well-being of your child.
