The Division of General Pediatrics is a thriving academic division with four major missions.

  • Education
    We provide outstanding training to house staff, fellows, and medical students in our ambulatory and inpatient clinical setting. We have a long-standing and highly successful fellowship program for General Academic Pediatrics and an award winning house staff training program in community pediatrics and child advocacy.
  • Research
    Our investigators are nationally renowned for health services research, with a focus on vulnerable children.
  • Clinical Services
    We provide comprehensive primary care to the two largest pediatric practices in Monroe County, a nationally renowned primary care setting for children in foster care, and inpatient services in two hospitals in Rochester, New York.
  • Community
    We collaborate with community leaders and a variety of local organizations in our community to successfully implement major child health and public health initiatives. Many of our faculty are national leaders within organizations that improve child health through policy, clinical care, research, and education.
