Reaching underserved rural areas through telehealth

The UC Davis Pediatric Telemedicine Program was the first of its kind in the U.S., and today is part of one of the nation’s largest telehealth services. Our clinicians conduct an average of 2,800 inpatient and outpatient telemedicine consultations each year, including nearly two-dozen pediatric specialties.
