shexThe future of pediatric health care depends on the performance of the faculty of the College of Medicine as educators.  We endeavor to provide the highest quality, comprehensive, well-organized and innovative curriculum and program for our students, residents, fellows and other trainees.  We promote self-directed learning as the basis for life-long continuing education.

The Department of Pediatrics participates in medical student education in the pre-clinical and clinical years of medical school.  The Department sponsors a summer science program for college students, designed to offer sophomore through senior level students interested in medical careers the opportunity to work in a research setting for ten weeks during the summer.

Faculty and staff of the department provide a variety of continuing education offerings for Arkansas health professionals including Grand Rounds, Faculty Development, research conferences, journal club and pediatric seminars.  Endowed Lectureships help offset the cost of bringing in renowned educators and researchers to teach.
