Championing Children’s Health

As strong providers of care for children and families, our far-reaching impact is anchored by partnerships with CHLA, California’s top children’s hospital, and L.A. General. Renowned faculty harness science to protect and restore kids’ health through robust collaborations. And expert mentorship and diverse clinical experience prepare trainees to define the future of pediatrics.

Message from the Chair

The Keck School’s partnerships with CHLA and L.A. General are a tremendous advantage to pediatric populations in our county, state, nation and around the globe. Those links advance our mission and leadership in patient care, research and training.
