Sidney Kimmel Medical College

Department of Pediatrics

We're dedicated to advocacy and diversity in training and health care delivery. Our academic mission includes research and discovery, with a robust publication record and growing portfolio of external funding.

At the bedside, the classroom, the laboratory, and in the community, our dedicated professionals work to ensure that all children have the opportunity to reach their full potential. It is through our legacy of 200 years of medical education (thanks to Jefferson and the Nemours founder, Alfred I. duPont) that we offer a healthier future for our children, our country, and our world.

Academic Programs



Our program offers a unique opportunity to work at a stand-alone, busy children’s hospital with daily interactive conferences, out-of-hospital retreats and direct care of patients - our students will master all aspects of pediatric care.



Nemours offers quality fellowship training opportunities in a wide range of pediatric specialties.
