General Pediatric clinics, located at Arkansas Children’s Hospital, are staffed with highly qualified, experienced board certified pediatricians and nurse practitioners who provide skilled, compassionate care to patients with both common pediatric problems as well as complicated chronic medical conditions. Routine well child care is also an important part of the clinic mission. Providers in the section also have expertise in the care of more specialized patient populations, including asthma, ADHD, autism and high risk newborns. Section members conduct ongoing clinical research in a variety of areas including burden-of-illness and pharmaceutical trials. The mission of General Pediatrics is threefold: to provide acute and continuity of care for all children who need quality medical intervention, to teach the state’s pediatricians-in-training, and to provide a setting for clinical research.
