Dating back more than 125 years, the Department of Pediatrics has a long-standing tradition of providing pediatric training in the backdrop of basic, translational and clinical research programs that are intimately woven into the academic fabric of the Washington University School of Medicine.

Pediatrics is rapidly evolving as a science. As we begin to assimilate the knowledge and promise of precision medicine into the more traditional aspects of clinical practice, the field of pediatrics is distinguished from clinical disciplines in its lifelong commitment to fostering the health and well-being of our children and their families.
