Defining the Future of Pediatrics
The future of pediatric health care depends on the performance of the faculty of the Department of Pediatrics as educators. We endeavor to provide the highest quality, comprehensive and well-organized curriculum and program for our students, residents, fellows and other trainees. We tailor our instruction to meet the specific needs of individual trainees.
We promote self-directed learning as the basis for life-long continuing education. We strive to fulfill the needs for continuing medical education and community education in pediatrics in the State. We are innovators in education and we continuously improve our programs and develop the teaching skills of our educators.
We seek the means to reduce morbidity and mortality and to advance the state of the art in health care through our basic, clinical and applied research endeavors. We promote the conduct of rigorous, high-quality research through the recruitment and retention of excellent scientists, development of thematic research groups and support of the research infrastructure.
