The Department of Pediatrics is one of the pioneering units of the DLSUMC since its inception in 1984. Today, the department is a dynamic, efficient and stable organization committed to improving pediatric health care, providing competent teaching, and conducting and using relevant and valid research.

The DLSUMC Department of Pediatrics was recognized as a level III training hospital by the Hospital Accreditation Board of the Philippine Pediatric Society.  We have an outstanding roster of General Pediatricians and almost all of the sub-specialties of Pediatrics such as: genetics/developmental; neonatology/intensivist; cardiology; endocrinology; hematology; immunology/allergology; infectious diseases; nephrology; neurology; pulmonology; rheumatology and toxicology.  Our consultants are all board certified members of the Philippine Pediatric Society.  Our sub-specialty consultants are acknowledged and certified by their respective subspecialty societies. The department has also started the Fellowship Program on Behavioral and Developmental Pediatrics in January 2016.
