Welcome to UF Department of Pediatrics
The Department of Pediatrics at the University of Florida is dedicated to the highest quality patient care, research, and educational activity devoted to improving the health of children. While our patient care services are focused upon improving the health of Florida’s children, through medical education and biomedical research we hope to improve children's lives within the greater Gator Nation and around the world.
Our primary focus is to create an educational environment which supports and meets the educational needs of each unique learner and gives each graduate the foundation he or she needs to be successful in his or her individual career path.
