The Section of General Pediatrics provides comprehensive inpatient and outpatient care for children of all ages. In the inpatient setting the academic generalists care for healthy newborns as well as mildly to seriously ill children with a broad range of medical conditions that require a tertiary care setting. The generalists work closely with all pediatric subspecialists, surgeons, and other allied health professionals to provide the highest quality of compassionate, family-oriented care. As primary care providers in the outpatient setting the generalists run a "private practice" style office to provide ongoing well care for pediatric patients of all ages with attendings available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The generalists also supervise the hospital-based primary care clinics. Specific areas of specialty include children with chronic diseases, developmental delay, and special needs.
