We are a group of professionals who constitute the Department of Pediatrics, which is part of the Medicine program of the University of Valle's Faculty of Health. This department contributes to social, ethical, scientific, and administrative formation of pediatric sciences to undergraduate and postgraduate students, generating comprehensive and qualified professionals to provide effective, sensitive and efficient medical service in solving child's physical and mental health problems.
