In 2001, physicians and leadership of the University of California, San Diego (UCSD), Rady Children's, and Children's Specialists of San Diego (CSSD) unified pediatric patient care, research, education and community service programs, creating a university-affiliated children's health system to serve the region. Over the past two decades, an extensive list of joint programs has developed, with many physicians and researchers playing a role at both institutions.
This affiliation has consolidated the clinical, teaching, research and public service programs of the UCSD School of Medicine's Department of Pediatrics with San Diego's only health care system dedicated to the health and well-being of children. In 2009, this partnership was furthered by the creation of Rady Children's Specialists of San Diego, a Medical Foundation, and is now recognized as having global leaders in research, technology, translational medicine, education and clinical excellence.
The Division of Academic General Pediatrics, Child Development and Community Health includes 20 faculty members, 2 post-doctoral fellows, 4 clinical fellow, 6 research interns, 50 research and health promotion staff, and additional clinical staff within 3 sections: Academic General Pediatrics, Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics and the Center for Community Health. The division is housed in 3 locations with space for clinical activities, medical education, research and other scholarly pediatric activities.
