Welcome to the Department of Pediatrics
The UCSF Department of Pediatrics is committed to excellence in research, education and the clinical care of infants, children and young adults. Our dedicated faculty have earned national and international recognition for their accomplishments and receive millions of dollars annually in extramural research funding to advance care for kids.
Our broad research program provides a steady infusion of new ideas that can be rapidly translated into improved clinical care. We offer access to clinical studies, some of them based in our Pediatric Clinical Research Center, and head a variety of laboratory-based and population/policy research programs.
