The best education equals the best care
Only an academic health center has the combination of research and care needed to treat your child today and find the treatments of tomorrow. KU Pediatrics provides outstanding medical services and programs for children, teenagers and young adults. Our providers constantly strive to give your child the best and most comprehensive care possible. We are dedicated to excellence in patient care, teaching and research.
Patient Care: We have outstanding medical services and programs for children and teens, and once they have grown into young adults, we help them transition from pediatric to adult medical care. When your child is sick, you can get a timely appointment at a location convenient for you -- multiple offices in the KC area and a new outpatient clinic at the KU Medical Center campus.

Education: Physicians in training learn from KU faculty who are committed to academic medicine. That means imparting knowledge and finding treatments and cures to improve the care of children. At KU, we are physicians, teachers and scientists. More than that, we are healers, passionately motivated to helping every child and family be happy and healthy.
