Work in Pediatrics!

Led by Department Head, Dr. Joseph Neglia, MD, MPH; the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Minnesota Medical School strives to improve the lives of children in our community, nation, and world through education, research, service, and advocacy.

  • Education: With over twenty-five training programs across a myriad of specialties and professions, we are committed to comprehensive and interdisciplinary training for our students, interns, residents, and fellows. Taught by faculty across a rich and diverse pediatric culture, the success of our learners is among our highest priorities.
  • Research: Our research builds on more than 100 years of pioneering breakthroughs, including the first successful pediatric blood and marrow transplant, the first infant heart transplant in Minnesota, and the first pediatric cochlear ear implant surgery. We rank eighth in funding from the National Institutes of Health among departments of pediatrics—underscoring our role as a leader in children's health.
  • Patient Care: Through teamwork and collaboration, we respectfully address the physical, emotional, cultural and spiritual needs of pediatric patients and their families. Our compassionate, innovative approach repeatedly receives national recognition.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We are seeking to enrich the diversity of our workplace community. We believe that diversity, equity, and inclusion are core to our pursuit of excellence and we encourage applications from varying and intersecting identities reflective of our communities — including people of color, indigenous people, people from working class backgrounds, and LGBTQ+ people. We believe that these communities must be centered in the work we do. Hence, we strongly encourage applications from people with these identities or who are members of other marginalized communities. Learn more about our values, commitments, and resources in our department, the medical school, and at the U of MN.
