Mission: Improving the lives of children through excellence in advocacy, education, research, and clinical care.

Welcome to the Department of Pediatrics. Founded in 1943, we are the second largest department in the University of Utah School Of Medicine and one of the largest pediatric departments in the country. There are 310 faculty members in the department with a fairly equal distribution of men and women, and we have the greatest number of tenured female faculty in the School of Medicine.

The department is comprised of 22 medical divisions and programs operating in conjunction with four key enterprises: education, research, clinical, and academic. Divisions provide a full spectrum of specialty and subspecialty pediatric services for children throughout the Mountain West.
