Johns Hopkins Children's Center has more than 30 pediatric subspecialties, including allergy, cardiology, cystic fibrosis, gastroenterology, nephrology, neurology, neurosurgery, oncology, pulmonary, and transplant. Hopkins Children’s subspecialties are staffed by more than 250 faculty members that not only care for patients, but train tomorrow’s pediatricians and conduct groundbreaking research. Please choose your specialty area of interest from the list above.
Our pediatric residency program requires residents to take part in core subspecialty rotations (cardiology, gastroenterology, hematology, nephrology, pulmonology and oncology). We also offer a robust fellowship training program in the pediatric subspecialties. A three-year fellowship prepares outstanding young doctors for an academic career in a specialized branch of pediatric medicine.
Our Pediatric Specialty Clinic is an outpatient facility located on the lower level of the new David M. Rubenstein Child Health Building. The clinic receives more than 23,000 visits a year, including 6,000 new patients not only from the region but from around the world. Many patients participate in clinical studies and trials to advance knowledge in treating and perhaps curing disorders related to an individual specialty.

Other pediatric specialties ranking in the top ten include Respiratory Disorders (sixth place) Kidney Disorders (seventh), Neonatal Care (ninth), Cancer (ninth) Orthopedics (tenth) and Digestive Disorders (tenth).
