Our mission: to improve the health of underserved children worldwide through medical education, translational research, clinical care and advocacy.
The Division of Global Pediatrics at the University of Minnesota offers a nationally-recognized education program (Pediatric Global Health Track) for pediatric and medicine/pediatric residents that emphasizes child advocacy.
We provide clinical services for adopted children through our International Adoption Clinic. We manage multiple funded research studies. Our organization also lends itself as a collaborative mechanism for faculty with diverse expertise in immigrant and refugee health, outcomes of post-institutionalized children, tropical medicine, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, infectious disease epidemiology, and travel medicine--to name just a few.
The Division is directed by Chandy John, M.D., M.S. We are proud to be located in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Minnesota Medical School.
