General Pediatrics

Division of General Pediatrics

Children are not just smaller adults. Their care requires approaches and techniques unique to the field of pediatrics, allowing children to live healthy lives and grow to their full potential. The Department of Pediatrics at the University of Mississippi School of Medicine educates the next generation of general pediatricians who will be treating patients from newborns to adolescents in a variety of situations. Research in this area leads to improved outcomes and healthier children.
