Our Mission is to train the next generation of pediatricians to be globally-minded, regardless of where they practice, to advocate for worldwide health equity and to improve the health of children in low-resource countries through research, education, and clinical care.

Our Vision is to be a leading site for training pediatricians in global health and to be the academic home of internationally recognized researchers in global health.
