About Us

The Department of Pediatrics is associated with some of the finest institutions in the country for the diagnosis and treatment of children. The department is housed within the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt, enabling a true synergy between the teaching faculty, house staff and the patients they treat. Vanderbilt trains 43 percent of all pediatricians practicing in Tennessee, and is a key training and research center for children’s health specialists across the nation.

The department is a part of the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine. The school's research program is one of the fastest growing in the nation. Our department also partners with the renowned Vanderbilt Kennedy Center for Research on Human Development, working to improve the quality of life of persons with disorders of thinking, learning, perception, communication, mood and emotion caused by disruption of typical development.
