The University of Minnesota Children’s Hospital is Minnesota’s first and only academic pediatric hospital.
At the University of Minnesota, we put a big focus on our smallest patients.
By operating at the intersection of clinical care, research and education, we're able to simultaneously create and deliver the latest innovations in pediatric medicine.
In fact, the pediatric experts with University of Minnesota Physicians often care for children no other health system can treat.
Our pediatric focus areas include:
- Examining the impact of pediatric cancer treatments
- Conducting new research into the development of diabetes to stop the disease in its tracks – offering hope to the 1 in 6 Minnesota children with diabetes or pre-diabetes
- Pediatric transplants that help children live longer, more normal lives
- Searching for ways to combat childhood obesity and health disparities that exist among children
Here, our research is geared toward getting at the source of health problems, laying the groundwork for children to grow into healthy adults.
