Our mission is to close the gap between the world’s 1 billion people who experience relatively good health and the 5 billion who experience much lower levels of health through teaching (education, training, and mentoring), research, and service programs.
Through excellence, innovation and collaboration, we will improve the health of all children and adolescents by educating the pediatric and physician leaders of the future, advancing research, advocating for children and providing the nation's best primary and specialty pediatric clinical care. In partnership with our health care and academic institutions, we will create a collegial environment where academic faculty can reach their personal and professional goals.
