A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove… but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child. The faculty of the UNLV Department of Pediatrics provides education for students and residents, participates in scholarly activities/research, and cares for the children of Las Vegas in a multi-specialty faculty practice. The academic full-time faculty are in the fields of adolescent medicine, developmental/behavioral pediatrics, endocrinology, gastroenterology, general pediatrics, infectious diseases, neurology, and pulmonology. Our community faculty who support our educational endeavors are in multiple fields across pediatrics as well.
Our program places a strong emphasis on academics and scholarly activity, with a requirement for a scholarly project prior to graduation. Residents have been able to present their work at many local, regional and national meetings sharing what they have successfully accomplished. Our robust mentorship program has been impactful in making scholarly activity a priority.
