The Division of General Academic Pediatrics at Weill Cornell Medicine is devoted to the care of children from birth through adolescence. Our mission includes research, education, clinical care, advocacy and community outreach.
Our faculty members serve as hospitalists, general pediatricians with special expertise in managing hospitalized patients, working in the general inpatient unit of the NewYork-Presbyterian Komansky Children’s Hospital. They care for a range of patients, from well newborns to children with complex diagnoses, and establish continuity of care among specialists and primary care doctors.
Our well baby nursery team cares for healthy newborns at NewYork-Presbyterian Alexandra Cohen Hospital for Women and Newborns on the Upper East Side and at the NewYork-Presbyterian Lower Manhattan Hospital campus.
Pediatric Primary Care is our largest outpatient program. Children are seen for regular checkups, sick visits, routine vaccinations and screening tests, and are examined by the same team of doctors and nurses each visit. Our specialized primary care programs include:
- Pediatric Asthma Program
- Adolescent Care
- Child Protection
- Teenage Parenting and Pregnancy (TAPP)
- Health for Life
- Special Needs Program
