The Department of Pediatrics is committed to improving the well-being of children through excellence and innovation in health care, scholarship, education, service and advocacy.

The department is made up of 22 divisions and more than 300 faculty and staff. We support learners in various stages of their education and training, including through our residency program and support of 12 fellowship programs, in efforts to cultivate the next generation of pediatricians and child health researchers. 

The department partners with Children’s Hospital & Medical Center in Omaha and Nebraska Medicine to provide exceptional patient care, immersive learning experiences for our students and exciting research opportunities for a healthier future for the children in our region and beyond.
