Welcome to UF Department of Pediatrics

The Department of Pediatrics at the University of Florida is dedicated to the highest quality patient care, research, and educational activity devoted to improving the health of children. The UF Health Shands Children's Hospital represents the only quaternary-care academic pediatric center in North Florida. Accordingly, we are dedicated to excellence and providing you with top-tier service. While our patient care services are focused upon improving the health of Florida’s children, through medical education and biomedical research we hope to improve children's lives within the greater Gator Nation and around the world.

Should we fall short of your expectations in any way, please do not hesitate to let us know.

Sincerely,
Scott Rivkees, Chairman
