Pediatric Clinical Network

UCSF is a leading biomedical research and graduate education center, ranking #1 in NIH funding for public institutions for the past seven years, and among the nation’s premier medical institutions, with UCSF Medical Center ranking as the fifth best hospital in the country and the top-ranked hospital in California, in U.S. News & World Report’s 2017-2018 Best Hospitals survey. With our large network of clinical collaborators and our proximity to the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals, we are within arm’s reach of leading clinical experts in all areas of pediatric medicine that interface with medical devices – pediatric neurosurgery, cardiac surgery, orthopaedic surgery, and general surgery in particular. This network provides our PDC members with invaluable needs assessment, feedback to new device developers, and potential collaborations for clinical testing and adoption.
