Our vision is to be the recognized national leader in the field of academic general pediatrics and to be the leader in establishing mechanisms for policy change to dramatically mitigate the unmet need in the management of different diseases of children. With a vision of making all children healthy, valued, and able to achieve their full potential.
The department of Pediatrics at the University of Basra is a vibrant academic department engaged in education, research, clinical services, and advocacy for children. The department members are strongly committed to education at all levels(medical students, postgraduate trainees, and continuing medical education).In collaboration with our colleagues from other departments, a full range of general and subspecialty services are available to children.
Our department is involved in a wide variety of clinical and basic research programs. Opportunities are provided for students and residents to become involved in focused research projects during their elective time.
The goal of the pediatric clinical experience is to provide an opportunity for each student to develop the basic skills required to provide medical care for infants, children, and adolescents, and to provide a foundation for further training in pediatrics.

• Pediatric education to medical students, residents, subspecialty fellows, practicing pediatricians and other healthcare providers using the latest resources and learning methods.
