Welcome to McGovern Medical School’s Division of Pediatric Hospital Medicine. Created in 2016, we are the newest division in the Department of Pediatrics and are committed to providing exceptional care to patients hospitalized at Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital. In doing so, we use an evidence-based, family-centered approach to inpatient care with outstanding communication and professionalism. Our faculty are constant advocates for improving the care of hospitalized children as we participate in ongoing patient safety and quality improvement initiatives as well as clinical research. We are the primary educators for the Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital Inpatient Pediatrics rotation for the residents and medical students at McGovern Medical School. We have a robust educational curriculum and participate in educational research and innovative educational programs.
As part of our mission to outstanding patient care and education, Pediatric Hospital Medicine faculty provide 24 hour in-house patient care and supervision of residents and students at Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital. Medical and surgical subspecialists from all disciplines are immediately available at Children’s Memorial Hospital, and our hospitalist teams work in conjunction with our pediatric subspecialists to provide comprehensive state-of-the-art care to our patients.
Our Division is actively developing a fellowship program for Pediatric Hospital Medicine at McGovern Medical School and Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital, as Pediatric Hospital Medicine is the newest sub-specialty board certification to be recognized by the American Board of Pediatrics. All of our Pediatric Hospital Medicine faculty will be eligible for the PHM sub-specialty board certification and will be actively pursuing this certification once available.
