Welcome to the Department of Pediatrics at USF Health
As part of an academic center, we collaborate with our USF Health colleagues to develop and implement innovations that are improving the health of our community. Together, we are fulfilling our vision of creating a better world for children.
Our mission is to be stewards of our community's most vulnerable and important resource - our children.
We accomplish this by:
- Training future pediatricians and healthcare providers
- Developing treatments and cures for pediatric diseases through research
- Advancing children’s issues through advocacy and community engagement
- Providing primary and specialty care for infants, children and adolescents
