Our mission:

  • To provide the highest quality and advanced medical care to children 
  • To develop new preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic strategies for diseases that impact children through basic, clinical and health services research
  • To provide outstanding education across the continuum of pediatric medicine.

The over 250 clinical, research, and instructional faculty in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Michigan's C.S. Mott Children's Hospital are committed to accomplishing these mission goals in all domains of child health from specialty care to primary care to community/global outreach and to research from basic science to practice. We also have a commitment to student and house officer training to train the next generation of Pediatricians through our Pediatric Residency ProgramInternal Medicine-Pediatrics Combined Residency Program and greater than 15 fellowship programs

We are committed to the benefits that diversity brings to the fabric our department, across staff, trainees and faculty.  Read our full statement on diversity, equity, and inclusion.
