General Pediatrics

The Division of General Academic Pediatrics is dedicated to the health and well being of area children. We offer a medical home to those who are underserved, uninsured or receiving Medicaid benefits, as well as those who require complex care. 

General Academic Pediatrics Staff

Our team includes board-certified pediatricians and board-certified nurse practitioners who work closely with other providers to ensure a strong continuum of care for every child we serve. We strive to be culturally sensitive in all situations and are tireless advocates for children both locally and nationally.

  • We perform a major role in education at the University of Missouri-Kansas City medical school, directing the pediatrics clerkship and supervising more than 100 pediatrics and medicine-pediatrics residents in their continuity clinics.
  • We bring a unique perspective to the inpatient rotation that includes the continuity of care from inpatient to outpatient.
  • Our team leads a circumcision workshop that is often modeled for simulation education.
  • Through our work on inpatient wards, we train an array of pediatric specialties, family medicine, dental and radiology residents.
