One of the nation’s largest health systems dedicated to children, Nemours cares for more than 250,000 children a year through the generosity of the DuPont legacy. Expanding to Orlando two years ago through the Nemours Children’s Clinic, plans are now in motion to join the community of partners at the medical city through a health campus that includes a state-of-the-art children’s hospital. Already making strides in cancer detection and therapy, eye disorders, robotic surgery, and medical engineering, the hospital is not only dedicated to educating doctors and to research, but to educating children about their own health through their groundbreaking program KidsHealth, the world’s most-visited website dedicated to the health of children.

With a focus on pediatric medical care, research and advocacy, Nemours Children’s Hospital is a growing force in the care of children. Joining their community partners at the medical city, Nemours Children’s Hospital offers you dynamic pediatric services, including areas such as neonatology, critical care, rheumatology, gastroenterology, allergy, and emergency medicine. As a student at the UCF College of Medicine, you will have access to one of the most acclaimed pediatric hospitals in the nation.
