The UC Davis Children’s Hospital offers comprehensive pediatric pharmacy services.

Our highly qualified pediatric-trained pharmacists are responsible for ensuring that the medications prescribed and dispensed to all pediatric patients are safe, effective, and in a form that is friendly for children, such as flavored liquids instead of tablets.
