We address child maltreatment by improving the well-being of children and families, strengthening their communities, and improving the systems serving them through evidence-informed services, transformative research, learner-centered education, and effective advocacy, all through an equity lens.
The Kempe Center was the first of its kind, established in 1972 to better understand and prevent child maltreatment and to serve affected children and their families. For over 50 years, Kempe has promoted understanding, knowledge, and best practices to prevent and treat child abuse and neglect globally. Today we honor our legacy while looking ahead for ways to transform our field.
We offer a three-year post-residency fellowship in child abuse and neglect. The goal of the fellowship is to provide physicians who are board eligible or board certified in pediatrics with in-depth, comprehensive, and intensive training in child abuse and neglect that will prepare them for a clinical or academic career dedicated to the field of Child Abuse Pediatrics, which is an American Board of Pediatrics subspecialty.
