Our outpatient health centers provide care primarily to the
inner-city population of Buffalo. Our inpatient service, at Women
& Children’s Hospital of Buffalo, provides care to a
patient base of urban, suburban and rural children throughout the
region. Combined, the diverse medical needs of our patients provide
rich clinical and research opportunities.
Our division provides the majority of the outpatient medical
education for pediatric residents. In addition, we provide most of
the third-year pediatric clerkship experiences. Our faculty
consistently receives teaching awards from the Jacobs School of
Medicine and Biomedical Sciences.
Research interests include obesity, nutritional disorders, lead
poisoning prevention and medical informatics.
Our Division of General Pediatrics operates two primary care
pediatric health centers serving inner-city children. This patient
population includes Caucasian, African-American, Hispanic and
immigrant populations. Together, these active sites see more than

environment for our students and residents. Both sites use an
electronic health record system that is integrated with the Women
& Children’s Hospital of Buffalo.
Our division also includes the Pediatric Hospitalist Service at Women &

unreferred medical admissions. This service provides more than
7,000 combined inpatient admission days per year. The service also
covers the newborn nursery, with approximately 1,500 newborns per
