Department of Pediatrics - About Us


The University of Louisville Department of Pediatrics exists to meet the health-related needs of children within environments that each child and family can perceive as safe.  We serve this mission through excellence in clinical care, medical education, pediatric research and community engagement, while inclusive of all.


The Department of Pediatrics is to be:

  • An inclusive environment that nurtures diversity among its faculty, staff and trainees as it pursues its missions
  • A center of excellence in children’s healthcare, in partnership with Norton Children’s Hospital, through provision of evidence-based, patient-centered, high quality, high value diagnostic, therapeutic, and preventive health services
  • Outstanding and innovative educators for our pediatrics residency training program, medical student rotations, and fellowship programs, with a faculty that models effective work-life balance
  • A national leader in pediatric clinical/clinical-translational trials, health services research, and education research, and a substantial contributor to basic science knowledge in childhood diabetes and neurosciences
  • Known for principled advocacy for children’s health and health equity and for community engagement and global health efforts that improve the lives of all in our city, our state, and beyond.

Our pediatric specialists work with community partners to provide a full range of services to children throughout Louisville, Southern Indiana, the commonwealth of Kentucky and the region. We provide clinical health care through our affiliation with the Norton Children's system of hospitals and outpatient practices.  We also provide services in Pediatrics units at UofL Hospital, Owensboro Medical Center and Baptist Health Paducah.

Our faculty are researchers who explore innovation in pediatric medicine. They are leaders in their fields, serving on local, regional and national committees and organizations, helping to set standards of care and formulate new models of treatment. They are educators, focused on training the next generation of pediatricians and pediatric specialists.

The UofL Department of Pediatrics is home to several training programs. We offer Pediatrics residency and collaborate with the UofL Department of Medicine on a Medicine-Pediatrics residency program. Our Child & Adolescent Psychiatry & Psychology division offers a Psychology internship, a Child Psychiatry residency program and a post-doctoral fellowship program. Our department also offers pediatric fellowship training programs in: Child Abuse Pediatrics, Infectious Diseases, Pulmonology,Developmental - Behavioral Pediatrics, Critical Care Medicine, Emergency Medicine and Neonatology.

At the University of Louisville Department of Pediatrics, we know that the world of tomorrow will inherit the children of today. We firmly believe that ours is among the highest callings, perhaps second only to parenting. We're proud of the work we do and pledge to always put children first.
