The Department of Pediatrics is one of the largest departments within the School of Medicine with approximately 200 faculty, 80 post-doctoral fellows (both MDs and PhDs) along with over 300 support staff (not including hospital staff).
In addition, the Department has more than 50 clinical residents and fellows distributed across the Divisions. The missions of research, education and patient care are intertwined, and are integral to the goals of the department. The Department has undergone significant growth in recent years with a consolidated budget of approximately $166 million including sponsored projects expenditures of approximately $69 million and clinical revenue of over $ 94 million. This expansion of the Department's research and clinical portfolio is expected to continue in the next few years.
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.
