Welcome to the Division of Academic Pediatrics

The Division of Academic Pediatrics at Washington University and St. Louis Children’s Hospital is the home of the several different pediatric services, including the Complex Care Clinic and its outpatient services for general pediatric patients, Pediatric Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (physiatry) and Behavioral and Developmental Pediatrics.

The division also provides an academic home for many community pediatricians including those of Washington University Clinical Associates and Esse Health, as well as independent practitioners. By providing an interface with these physicians and the academic center, the division helps coordinate educational activities such as pediatric grand rounds, the Patient of the Week series and other CME events. Additionally, the division supports the efforts of our community research undertakings with Washington University Pediatric and Adolescent Ambulatory Research Consortium.
