About the Division of General Pediatrics

Every child needs a health care professional to guide them through the milestones and hurdles of childhood. The UofL Division of General Pediatrics is uniquely prepared to help families successfully navigate their journey. Our health care providers are children's advocates, committed to providing excellent care to every child, from birth through adolescence. As UofL faculty, we are teachers whose care helps health professions students learn the art and science of medicine.

Mission of the UofL Division of General Pediatrics is to achieve and maintain optimal physical, mental, and social well-being for all infants, children, adolescents, and young adults. As faculty members of the University of Louisville School of Medicine, we strive to create knowledge, to impart that knowledge to others, and to enable learners to take advantage of every educational opportunity.

To carry out this mission, the Division of General Pediatrics must use evidence and creativity to determine how we deliver care.

We focus on:

  • Comprehensive primary care supported by comprehensive research and education
  • Providing access to high quality care in patient centered medical homes for the most vulnerable populations
  • Developing, applying, evaluating and sharing new approaches to health care
  • Implementing vibrant professional homes for the most highly qualified health care providers and medical educators
