The division has innovative programs in clinical care and advocacy, an active research portfolio, and a strong emphasis on education both locally and in a statewide program that assures the quality of evaluations done through the state.
The GPAM division is the largest in the Department of Pediatrics and includes outpatient care, hospital medicine, newborn care, adolescent medicine and other affiliated specialty services such as development/behavioral pediatrics. The division has a nationally-known and productive research program in addition to a long record of teaching excellence.
