About Us

Pediatric hospitalists ensure that children have excellent care during their hospital stay and a smooth transition back home. Our faculty share their expertise in managing children with complex illnesses with medical students, residents and fellows. Division members also conduct research projects designed to improve the care of hospitalized children.
