The Section of General Academic Pediatrics has a long and distinguished record in improving the lives of Colorado's children through clinical care, community service, and advocacy activities.
The Department of Pediatrics’ four-pillar mission—clinical services, advocacy, research, and education—is wholly reflected in the work of the Section of General Academic Pediatrics. Children regionally and nationally have benefited from the innovative systems and care advances it has introduced. Of note:
Section faculty train 53 Pediatric residents, 16 Family Medicine residents, 22 Child Health Associates, and 10 medical students each year while providing longitudinal, comprehensive primary care in the Child Health Clinic at Children’s Hospital Colorado. Other training sites include clinics and inpatient units at Denver Health, Children’s Hospital Colorado, University of Colorado Hospital, and community practices.
