Organization profile

The Global Pediatrics Program was founded at the University of Minnesota in 2005, starting as the Center for Global Pediatrics. Our focus has been on insuring the best possible possible health for children worldwide through our programs in research, education and clinical care. Among our earliest initiatives at the University of Minnesota was the establishment of a global health track for pediatric and medicine-pediatric residents, which has graduated 85 residents with global health certification through 2014. We published and have implemented the first competency-based residency curriculum in global child health in the US. Our research focuses on the interactions between infection, nutrition and neurodevelopment, and we conduct research studies in Uganda, Kenya, Nigeria and the United States. Clinical care is provided through our international adoption clinic, the first such clinic in the country. Today, the Division benefits from the research, teaching and clinical talents of 10 core faculty, 4 affiliate faculty, 3 adjunct faculty and 9 associate faculty worldwide.
