Vision: Academic Pediatric Departments lead in care delivery, research, training, and advocacy that improves the health and wellbeing of children in their communities and throughout the world.
We are professional and honest in our working relationships and strive for equity and fairness in our decision making. We honor our commitments and hold ourselves accountable to the highest ethical and performance standards.
We are committed to working together with each other, patient groups, and relevant professional organizations. We support a culture of participation and inclusion, including the formation of partnerships, and advocacy designed to influence public-policy and resource allocation decisions that impact children’s health. We respect differences among our members and their organizations, recognizing they are part of our strength, and freely share ideas to inspire and learn from one another.
We care about children and families and each other.
We support an organizational culture that values change and innovation.
As the leaders in academic pediatrics we model the values of our organization and help to develop the leaders of tomorrow.
We pursue excellence in all our core missions: clinical care, research, education and advocacy.
- Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion
We are committed to proactively engaging, understanding and addressing equity, diversity and inclusion.
