​The Department of Pediatrics at UCSD is one of the nation's premier Departments devoted to improving the understanding of disease pathogenesis in ​order to better diagnose, treat and prevent diseases in infants and children. Research efforts include basic and clinical science in various fields spanning the whole range of maladies. Another important goal in the Department is to build and foster the development of the next generation of research leaders in Pediatric Medicine. There has been no better time for research and training in Pediatrics than what is currently and what we predict it will be in the next decade!
