The Department has more than 600 faculty members who work collaboratively to provide the highest quality clinical care, education and research to achieve the best possible outcomes for every child and family who entrust their care to us. Each year, children come from all 50 states and more than 50 countries around the world to benefit from the expertise of our faculty and scientists.
The Department of Pediatrics is deeply committed to superior education of students, residents, fellows and other health care professionals utilizing a variety of innovative educational techniques deployed in our state-of-the-art facilities. As one of the largest and busiest children’s hospitals in the country, Nationwide Children’s provides a diversity of educational experiences at the bedside, in the clinic, in the community and in the research laboratory.

Our hospital and faculty zealously invests our time and energy in advocating for the well-being of children in the community, across the nation and around the world, through engagement in personal advocacy and vital policy and systems work at the state and national level.
Our faculty engage in cutting-edge research to discover and develop the new therapies of tomorrow. Here, discovery, translation and team science aren’t just abstract notions. They are our foundation as we seek answers on behalf of children everywhere. Our research programs are found across our campus, including more than a half-million square feet of dedicated research space.
Our faculty and faculty leaders recognize and embrace humanism as a core value. We are dedicated to addressing social determinants of health, quality, patient safety, genomic medicine, behavioral health and population health, as we recognize the value of each member of our teams. Collectively, our 14,000 faculty and staff have formally declared racism is a “public health crisis” and have taken definitive steps against systemic racism in our StAR (Stand Against Racism) initiatives.
