Pediatric Hospital Medicine

Dedicated, full-time hospitalists have staffed the general pediatric inpatient service at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital since 1999.  Our hospitalists are experts in caring for hospitalized children with a variety of acute and chronic conditions.

Mission Statement:

John Schmidt, M.D.
Division Director

The Division of Pediatric Hospital Medicine will provide the highest quality, safe and compassionate care to pediatric patients within our health system.  We will provide the best possible education to our patients, families, students, residents, fellows, and staff while also striving to advance the field for our peers.

Clinical Care

Our hospitalists are experienced in the medical management of children admitted to the hospital.  We focus on promoting high quality, effective, efficient, safe care in a culturally sensitive, family-centered environment.  Current, evidence-based medicine is used to develop, implement, refine and advance best practices in the interprofessional setting.


Faculty within the Pediatric Hospital Medicine Division are actively engaged in clinical and educational research projects.  We advocate for safe care through structured quality improvement.


The pediatric hospitalists are the primary teachers of inpatient general pediatrics to medical students and resident physicians at C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital.  We provide supervision of medical trainees 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Pediatric hospitalists are frequently recognized with departmental and medical school teaching awards each year.

The University of Michigan offers highly competitive salaries and tremendous benefits to our residents/fellows.  An overview of salary, benefits and employment eligibility is available on the GME Office website, under “Prospective Residents/Fellows.”
