Our mission is to advance child health in Sacramento and surrounding regions through excellence in patient care, education, research, and community partnerships.
Our general pediatrics faculty are part of integrated, multidisciplinary teams of patients, families, medical and surgical specialty providers, mental health providers, schools, and other government and non-governmental agencies that promote child health from birth through adolescence and transition to young adulthood.
Our faculty are leading and partnering in clinical trials, qualitative research, population health research, healthcare delivery science research, and community-engaged research.
Scholarly areas of expertise include medical education, health care equity, integrated behavioral health in primary care, ACEs screening and responding, breastfeeding medicine, care of children in foster care, care of children with complex medical conditions, quality improvement, advocacy, and physician wellness.
On a local, regional, national, and international scale, our faculty are leading and partnering in the education of learners in all stages of the health professions pathway, including K-12, pre-health, and health professions students, residents, fellows, and practicing health professionals. Our faculty are teachers at the bedside, in the classroom, and with our partners outside of the health system.
Our faculty provide expert patient-centered and family-centered care for infants, children, and adolescents at UC Davis Medical Center and at community sites in partnership with federally-qualified health centers (FQHCs).
We partner with federally-qualified health centers (FQHCs) to deliver comprehensive primary care, provide student and resident education, and promote the health of diverse communities of Sacramento.
