Our mission is to expand the frontiers of clinical care, education, and research in our field as we strive for excellence, creativity, and innovation. Our goal is to provide an outstanding educational environment for the next generation of child neurologists.

The Department of Pediatrics at the University of Florida is home to over 120 faculty members and over 60 residents and fellows. The UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital represents the only quaternary-care academic pediatric center in North Florida. Accordingly, we are dedicated to excellence and provide our patients and families with top-tier service. While our patient care services are focused upon improving the health of Florida’s children, through medical education and biomedical research we hope to improve children’s lives within the greater Gator Nation and around the world.

We are excited to welcome you to the University of Florida Child Neurology Residency Program.
