Clinical Care

Pediatric Hospital Medicine faculty at IU School of Medicine work with patients at four different IU Health hospitals with an emphasis on the bedside and on family-centered care. Preeminent care is expected and advocacy for the child extends to the family or support group on whom they depend. The multidisciplinary approach of pediatric hospitalists at IU School of Medicine prioritizes collaboration among all the subspecialties and support staff. Communication with referring physicians and hospitals is a high priority, as these physicians contact each primary care physician on discharge regarding their patients and the hospital course. Appropriate consultation with subspecialists and assistance with securing outpatient follow-up as needed is of prime importance to Pediatric Hospitalists.

Accomplished Pediatricians Training the Next Generation

Excellence in teaching is a highly valued aspect to advancing the mission of better health for children. Direct contact with patients in a family-centered care format allows residents, fellows, medical students, nurse practitioner students, and physician assistant students to train under the guidance of faculty physicians. Each day, this team of specialists teach at the bedside and, in more formal settings, through didactic lectures. Through learners, IU School of Medicine Department of Pediatrics faculty extend their patient care to improve the health and well-being of children throughout the state and beyond.
