Dear Friends of Pediatrics,
and fellows. "
W
e are pleased to present the Department of Pediatrics’ Departmental Report,
a comprehensive review of our accomplishments during the past three years
in our clinical, research, education, international health, and advocacy pro-
grams—all of which are crucial in supporting The Children’s Hospital’s mission to
advance pediatric health care.В В SinceВ 2006В the Department has experienced strong growth in several important
areas. Our faculty increased to more than 500 members, a deepening of our talent pool that has resulted in significant program expansion in the basic sciences and
in clinical, translational, and outcomes research. These reenergized and expanded
research initiatives hold much promise for improving the lives of children everywhere
and have gone far in solidifying the Department’s local and national prominence.
В Our faculty members are national leaders in education and advocacy. In that tradition, we continue to develop the next generation of leadership by cultivating and
implementing cutting-edge educational initiatives in support of our medical students,
physician assistant students, residents, and fellows. As an important adjunct to these
efforts, our faculty members remain committed to advocating for child-health issues
at the state, national, and international levels.
2 Department of Pediatrics
В Our Department of Pediatrics continues to foster landmark program development,
including our nationally renowned stem-cell research initiative. In late 2008, Bruce
Appel, PhD,В DirectorВ of theВ Program of Pediatric Stem Cell Biology, Department of
Pediatrics, was named the Diane G. Wallach Chair in Pediatric Stem Cell Biology.
Dr. Appel is partnering with theВ UniversityВ of Colorado Denver and Dennis Roop,
PhD,В who is the Charles C. Gates Chair of Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell
BiologyВ and the Director of the Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Biology
Program. Together,В they will open up new and exciting research avenues in this
crucial area of disease prevention, diagnostics, management, and treatment.
 The September 2007 transition to The new Children’s Hospital and our shared
medical campus provided an opportunity to develop Children’s strategic plan in collaboration with the University of Colorado Denver—an ambitious plan that will serve
as a pediatric operational and service excellence blueprint. These clinical, education,
and research guideposts include developing nationally prominent clinical, educational,
and research programs and dramatically increasing National Institutes of Health
(NIH) funding during the next five to seven years. “The Children’s Hospital and
the Department of Pediatrics
marked a major milestone
by securing more than
$44.5 million in peer-reviewed
 Toward that specific research-funding goal, The Children’s Hospital and the
Department of Pediatrics marked a major milestone by securing more than $44.5
million in peer-reviewed awards from the NIH during 2008—ranking first among all
awards from the NIH
during 2008.”
medical school-based Departments of Pediatrics in NIH awards. This is a remarkable
achievement that underscores the Department’s position on the forefront of pediatric
research.
 The current downturn in the nation’s and the world’s economies poses a major
challenge to the efforts outlined in this letter. Regardless of the circumstance or challenge, the Department of Pediatrics will continue to build upon its long-standing tradition of excellence in the cause of children’s health. Our success and strength is founded on Children’s robust 100-year history, coupled with outstanding faculty, excellent
collaboration, the best hearts and minds, and a continued dedication
to our mission.

summary
Advocating for children everywhere is a top priority for The Children’s Hospital (TCH) and the
Department of Pediatrics at the University of Colorado Denver School of Medicine (UCDSOM).
A key component of the mission is to “enhance the health and well-being of the children
and families in our community.” To this end, Department of Pediatrics’ faculty and trainees
actively collaborate with the Department of Public Affairs at Children’s and colleagues at
UCDSOM, the Colorado School of Public Health, and the Colorado Chapter of the American
Academy of Pediatrics to effect comprehensive and strategic advocacy and legislative efforts
on the local, state, and national levels.

summary
International activities have been a long-standing component of the Department of
Pediatrics. For years our faculty and residents have traveled and worked in many parts
of the world. Over the last few years, however, the department has established more
formal relationships with programs abroad.
T
en years ago a group of faculty created the
International Child Health Elective.* The initial
location for this program was in Latin America. The
first group went to Lima, Peru, and rotated through
the Hospital de NiГ±os and Hospital Nacional Cayetano
Heredia. Our residents continue to go to Lima: recently,
two residents spent a month at the Hospital Regional
in Cuzco, Peru; and another resident went to rural Peru
and worked in a small clinic for a month.
In 2004 the program expanded to Guatemala at
the Roosevelt Hospital in Guatemala City. In 2006 an
exchange program was established with the Baca-Ortiz
Children’s Hospital in Quito, Ecuador. Two groups
of residents went to Quito and one group of three

the largest research grant
in Colorado’s history
Colorado Clinical and Translational
Sciences Institute
A
n NIH research grant to the University of Colorado Denver has
resulted in a new institute for clinical and translational research
studies, including the more than 160 current clinical research studies
for childhood diseases. The $76 million Clinical and Translational
Science Award (CTSA) from the NIH was awarded in May 2008
and is the largest research grant in the State of Colorado’s history.
The grant has funded the creation of the Colorado Clinical and
Translational Sciences Institute (CCTSI), with the goal of improving
the health of the people in Colorado.
The CCTSI is an “institute without walls” that brings together a
number of partnering organizations, including University of Colorado
Denver, University of Colorado at Boulder, The Children’s Hospital,
University of Colorado Hospital, Denver Health, National Jewish
Health, VA Medical Center in Denver, and Kaiser Permanente, in
addition to 20 community organizations and research groups. The
CCTSI also brings many ongoing programs together in a new integrated and coordinated effort that will make it easier for investigators
to find collaborators and for those outside of the University and in the
private sector to communicate and collaborate with our researchers.
“The CCTSI has a very wide breadth,” said Ronald J. Sokol, MD,
Director and Principal Investigator of the CCTSI, and Professor and
Vice Chair, Clinical and Translational Research, Department of Pediatrics, University
Ronald Sokol, MD, Director and

of Colorado Denver School of Medicine. “It really is a state resource as well as a
University resource. This grant funds our institution to develop a true academic home
for clinical and translational research and training with the goal of speeding discoveries into clinical practice – from our labs to your lives.”
Translational research bridges the gap between basic science and clinical med-
icine and brings new advances into practice, to the bedside, and to the community.
According to Dr. Sokol, the goal of the CCTSI is to improve health care in Colorado
by transforming “how we currently perform and train investigator teams in clinical
and translational research.”

“The uniqueness of this institute and the value to everyone is that we don’t choose
researchers based on the diseases they study,” Dr. Sokol added. “It’s based on the
quality of science and what is needed to improve health in the State of Colorado,
including the needs of children.”
The Institute encourages and facilitates research and provides support through six

“Many new treatments have been tested here at Children’s and at other sites, such
that the average life span for CF is now well into adulthood,” Dr. Sokol said. “There
are tangible benefits from much of the research that has been done and new treatments that have been implemented. This is exactly the type of work the CCTSI will
enhance and support.”
The CTSA is a five-year grant, which Dr. Sokol envisions hopefully will be renewed
“many years over.”
“The GCRC program that the CTSA replaces has been funded for 45 years,”
Dr. Sokol said. “The NIH transformed the old GCRC and some other programs
into the new CTSA program in order to speed discoveries to the patient.”

local access to comprehensive
multidisciplinary care
Gastrointestinal Eosinophil Diseases Program
U
ntil recently, children with Eosinophilic Gastrointestinal Diseases (EGIDs) who
lived in the Rocky Mountain Region did not have local access to comprehensive
multidisciplinary care. To fill this void, the Gastrointestinal Eosinophil Diseases
Program (GEDP), a collaborative program between The Children’s Hospital, the
Section of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition in the Department of
Pediatrics, and National Jewish Health, was developed by Glenn T. Furuta, MD, and
F. Dan Atkins, MD. Launched in December 2007, the GEDP has already provided
care for more than 250 patients from more than 35 states.
EGIDs are a group of diseases characterized by a
wide variety of gastrointestinal symptoms, including vomiting, swallowing problems, food impaction,
abdominal pain, diarrhea, slow growth, and bleeding.
These symptoms occur in combination with increased
numbers of eosinophils in the gastrointestinal lining.
Eosinophils are a type of white blood cell that have
been primarily associated with allergic diseases and
are also found in other diseases. Treatment is individualized and includes changes in the patient’s diet,
and/or inhaled, swallowed or oral steroids.
“Once we became aware of this disorder, we
realized that this is a population of patients we
had missed diagnosing in the allergy community,”
said F. Dan Atkins, MD, Co-Director of the GEDP
and Associate Professor of Pediatrics, University of
Glenn Furuta, MD, and Dan Atkins, MD,
examining a patient with his mother in
the Gastrointestinal Eosinophil Center
Colorado Denver School of Medicine (UCDSOM). “The more we ask the right questions, the more of these children we find. In the past 5 to 10 years we’ve been seeing
more and more of these children in our allergy practice. They often have allergic disorders and gastrointestinal symptoms. It’s a perfect disease for allergists and gastroenterologists to tackle together.”
The mission of the GEDP is to improve the quality of life for patients and families
affected by EGIDs. The program offers a comprehensive evaluation for patients suspected of having EGIDs and for children who have a previously established diagnosis.
Patients receive a thorough review of medical records, pathology slides, endoscopic
procedures, and allergy testing. In the GEDP clinic – which rotates between Children’s
26 D e p a r t m e n t o f P e d i a t r i c s
and National Jewish – patients receive a multidisciplinary evaluation by board-certified pediatric gastroenterologists and allergists, psychosocial and behavioral clinicians,
and nutritionists and pediatric feeding specialists. Care is coordinated by a physician
assistant and pediatric nurse and administrators at both institutions.
According to Dr. Atkins and Dr. Furuta, Director of the GEDP and Associate
Professor of Pediatrics, UCDSOM, the multidisciplinary component is important
to families. Patients and families now have access to several specialties during one
visit and in one location, which otherwise might have taken a month or more to
see individually.
“We have a team meeting every week to talk about our patients,” Dr. Atkins said.
“There is a carefully coordinated effort to provide a comprehensive, individualized
plan for each of our patients.”
Glenn Furuta, MD, and Dan Atkins, MD
“Children with EGIDs often complain of common symptoms, leading to a delay in
their diagnosis,” Dr. Furuta said. “It often takes a long time to recognize that something else might be wrong when children are not getting better with common management. Because these are chronic diseases, the quality of life with the disease and qual-

of lectures and audio broadcasts on the Web, organized international meetings, and
recently published a book about these diseases. In addition, they work with the advocacy group American Partnership for Eosinophilic Diseases (APFED.org) to advocate
for children and adults with these diseases.
“Our unbelievable team of talented individuals is committed to utilizing our expertise to provide outstanding patient care, to make discoveries that will translate into
improved quality of children’s lives, and to educate the academic and public communities in the area of EGIDs,” Dr. Furuta said.

custom web-based software
streamlines academic affairs
Faculty Information Database Online (FIDO)
F
aculty and administrators in the Department of Pediatrics have a new tool that has
streamlined – and simplified – the process of managing academic appointments.
The Faculty Information Database Online (FIDO) was launched in January 2008.
This custom Web-based software manages many aspects of faculty data, including
academic rank and appointments, faculty annual reviews, research interests, and
administrative appointments. With its launch, the
Department of Pediatrics became one of the first
pediatric departments in the nation to implement an
electronic system to manage academic affairs.
Peg Christon, MD, MSCIS, Director of the Faculty
Information Database On-Line (FIDO), helped
build a system several years ago for the UCDSOM
Department of Medicine called DOMINO. She
was able to bring that software to the Department
of Pediatrics and enhance and adapt it to the
Department’s needs. The result is a database that has
replaced Excel spreadsheets, Access tables, and many
paper-based processes for the approximately 500
faculty and 21 administrators in the Department.
“Our first priority was to serve as the new forum
for all annual faculty reviews. That was accomplished and everyone did it, we had 100 percent parFIDO Team l-r:

ticipation,” Dr. Christon said. “After that process we did a survey to see what the faculty thought of the software. 73 percent rated their experience as �excellent’ or �good.’
Overall it was a really positive response.”
FIDO allows a faculty member to log on, select his or her reviewer/supervisor, fill
out the review, and submit it. Then the system automatically routes it to the reviewer,
who receives an e-mail message indicating that a review is awaiting their comments.
They log on, review what the faculty member entered, fill in their comments and discuss them with the faculty member. Then the reviewer submits their comments.
28 D e p a r t m e n t o f P e d i a t r i c s
The review gathers a wealth of information, including clinical work, research activities, research focus, grants, advocacy, patents, service, and administration. Faculty
members and reviewers can work on the review, save their data, finish it at a later
time, and submit it when complete; it then moves through the routing. Final comments are added to each review by Department Chairman Stephen R. Daniels, MD,
PhD. The annual review process is an important way for the Department to foster
mentoring and career development for the faculty.
“Most of the review is confidential, and we clearly outline in a privacy policy what
is shareable and what is private,” Dr. Christon said. “The research piece is shareable.
Now people can use a new keyword search engine to look up research information on
a faculty member’s profile; that’s valuable for collaborations and mentoring.”
In addition to keyword search, the search engine allows users to look up faculty by

section heads, administrators, and academic affairs staff. Reports include faculty lists

they are having difficulty or ask a question. All helpdesk tickets are tracked through a
central helpdesk e-mail address.
Dr. Christon said FIDO users have made a number of requests to enhance the system. Requests are being reviewed and prioritized by the Department and continually
being added to the software. Some of the enhancements incorporated recently include
the addition of a spell checker, a section to track patents, the new search engine and
faculty profiles, and many enhancements to the annual review form.
“Some of the most consistent positive comments from the faculty survey were that
it’s easy to use, they love that it’s computer-based, and they like that they could do a
little bit, save it and come back and work on more later,” Dr. Christon said.
“This coming year, faculty will be able to take last year’s review and import it into
the new review so they don’t have to re-enter everything – they can edit what they
entered last year,” Dr. Christon added. “They are looking forward to that!”

complete medical records
at our fingertips
Electronic Medical Record System
I
n mid-2007, The Children’s Hospital (TCH) became the first free-standing pediatric
hospital in the nation to fully implement an integrated Electronic Medical Record
(EMR) system (according to the research firm, KLAS).
This achievement enables pediatric physicians and other care providers to access
patient records electronically through secure technology whether they are at TCH,
their office, an outside clinic, or another location. EMR eases care delivery by allowing authorized providers to view all pertinent patient
data in one place, including past medical history,
lab results, consults from subspecialists, images and
reports, and orders.
“For the first time, we have everything we need
available at our fingertips,” said David Kaplan,
MD, MPH, Chief Medical Information Officer and
Head of Adolescent Medicine at TCH and Professor
of Pediatrics at the University of Colorado Denver
School of Medicine (UCDSOM). “Documentation
is much more complete than ever before. It’s more
organized; notes are not missing as sometimes would
be the case with paper records.”
TCH is also the first pediatric hospital to integrate
an EMR system that includes child abuse services.
A novel, model way of charting abuse reports, the
system uses a SCAN (Suspected Child Abuse and
David Kaplan, MD, MPH
Neglect) encounter. “We can effectively report out how many children are reported
as suspected child abuse cases, for what reason or diagnosis, and from what unit
or area,” explained Andrew Sirotnak, MD, Director of the Kempe Child Protection
Team (CPT), Department Head of Child Abuse and Neglect, and Associate Professor
of Pediatrics at UCDSOM.
During the reporting, a hyperlink flags the chart as a previously reported case, so
any user can access this data anywhere in the hospital’s Network of Care. In addition, the CPT Clinic can upload sensitive photos to a secure server. It’s just one of the
many ways the system is changing the delivery of pediatric healthcare.
30 D e p a r t m e n t o f P e d i a t r i c s
Transition Put EMR on Fast Track
TCH aggressively pursued the implementation to meet the needs of the move to its
new location. “There was urgency to get the new record system implemented for both
the outpatient clinics and all the inpatient units and ensure we had a system that was
stable and efficient before we moved,” explained Dr. Kaplan.
Launching EMR was challenging: users encountered, and expected, difficulties during the implementation.
“It’s a work in progress, not just a simple installation,” Dr. Kaplan emphasized.
Children’s is partnering
“We are understanding how to use the tools in the EMR to provide more consistent, evidence-based care to our patients with the obvious goal of improving patient
outcomes,” added Michael Narkewicz, MD, Hewit-Andrews Chair in Pediatric Liver
Disease, Professor of Pediatrics at UCDSOM, and Director of Clinical Services for
Pediatric Gastroenterology at TCH.
Children’s vendor, EPIC, applauded the team on an impressive installation and

extensive capabilities.
“It’s important that we challenge EMR, ourselves, and the institution to be excellent
and not accept average from ourselves or the systems that we use,” Dr. Kaplan noted.
“Children’s patients and their families can expect better, high-quality care because
we are centralizing clinical information to make it readily available to verified clinicians when and where they need it,” explained Dena Somers, Director of Clinical

work enabling authorized
care providers to share vital
health information.
Children’s participating in innovative health information exchange pilot
With the EMR in place and access to patient data streamlined, TCH is part of a
partnership to electronically share that data. Children’s is partnering with three other
health care organizations – Denver Health, Kaiser Permanente of Colorado, and the
University of Colorado Hospital – in an innovative pilot to develop an electronic
health information network enabling authorized care providers to share, and have
access to, vital health information when and where they need it.
Colorado is one of six states piloting this important project headed by the
Colorado Regional Health Information Organization (CORHIO), a not-for-profit
regional health information organization to facilitate health information exchange to
improve care for all Coloradans. Colorado received support from federal and local
grants and contracts to begin network development. This work began with a contract
awarded in fall 2004 by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.
2006-2008 Departmental Report

EMR
The system is based on a platform that interfaces with different sources and
computer hardware to seamlessly link the partnering sites. The system does not
store clinical data; the patient’s data resides at the source to be shared only when
an authorized ED user requests the information via a secure connection that ensures
patient confidentiality.
When a patient is admitted to the emergency department, they receive a fact sheet,
available in English and Spanish, about the pilot, and they are given the choice to opt
out. For patients who opt out, their information is not shared. The system is linked
to the three other hospital emergency departments, Kaiser’s urgent care location in
Englewood and its nursing triage line. Authorized users are able to electronically
access, via a secure connection, a patient’s medical history, including labs, imaging
results, EKG wave forms, problem lists, and current medications. Any additional
information and/or results the provider requires must be requested via a traditional
Release of Information form.
The system is off to a successful start. Already, one major benefit is a reduction of
costly duplication of services.
“Overall, Children’s participation in this joint effort is in line with our mission,
vision, and values,” said Kim Peterson, RHIA, Health Information Management
Application Coordinator. “It made sense to rise to the call as we are a leader in the
metro area and have a fully integrated electronic medical record. This effort is in sync
with who we are.”
The EMR will help Dr. Rupa Narra offer more comprehensive care while ensuring patient confidentiality

(CHA/PA) was established in 1968 in response to a
growing need for pediatric health care providers. It was
the first to offer a master’s degree and remains the only
PA program specializing in pediatrics with service to
disadvantaged, at-risk and medically underserved populations. Although the program offers additional training
in pediatric care, its primary care curriculum prepares
students to evaluate, diagnose, and treat patients of all
ages. For 40 years, CHA/PAs have functioned as colleagues of physicians and other health professionals,
providing comprehensive health services, including not

Education
The University of Colorado Denver School of Medicine
Department of Pediatrics and The Children’s Hospital
offers a two-year fellowship/residency in genetics. The
goal of the training program is to provide physicians who
have completed at least two years of training in pediatrics, or other primary specialty, with in-depth training in
clinical genetics that will prepare them for certification
by the American Board of Medical Genetics and a career
in clinical or academic medicine. Elective rotations in
clinical genetics and metabolism are available for residents
in all clinical areas. Clinical genetics and metabolism
is an important component of the pediatric clerkship
curriculum for third-year medical students at UCD. Our
faculty provides a lecture in genetics as part of the clerkship’s core lecture series. An elective in birth defects/
genetics is available for fourth-year medical students who
have successfully completed a pediatric clerkship.

Community Pediatrics
Clinical Services
The mission of the Section of Community Pediatrics
is to develop, implement, and evaluate new programs
and new models of health care for improving the health
of Colorado’s children (particularly the underserved
children); to assist community providers in providing
a high-quality, cost-effective medical home for all children; and to educate and prepare pediatric trainees in
providing comprehensive health care to the increasingly
diverse and underserved children of Colorado.
Services to support community-based practices
Colorado Children’s Health Care
Access Program (CCHAP)
The mission of this grant-funded, non-profit organization
is to encourage and enable all Colorado primary care
providers to provide a regular, high-quality source of
comprehensive primary care (a medical home) for lowincome and other underserved children and to ensure
that all Colorado children are able to access a medical
home. This non-profit organization develops, sustains,
and evaluates the resources and support systems
for enabling all Colorado pediatricians and family
physicians to devote at least 10% to 20% of their
practice to the health care of these children. For more
information, visit www.cchap.org.
Socio-Cultural Training Program
This is a grant-funded program to provide training for
the providers and staff in all Colorado pediatric and
family practices and for all Colorado pediatric residents
and faculty in the Department of Pediatrics and to
develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes that will
enable them to provide culturally sensitive and responsive health care for low-income and racially and ethnically diverse families. For more information, visit
www.dimensionsofculture.com.

Pediatric Provider Resource Hotline
and Care Coordination Program
This program assists all Colorado primary care providers with identifying and utilizing all appropriate medical,
psychological, and socio-economic resources and assists
with care coordination to improve health outcomes for
chronically ill children.
Pediatric Locum Tenens Service
This service provides short-term practice coverage
for pediatricians throughout Colorado and Wyoming.
The program emphasizes coverage for rural and small
practices. Over the past 15 years, our physicians have
covered for nearly three-quarters of the pediatric practices in Colorado and Wyoming.
Mini-Sabbatical Program
This is a grant-supported program that provides a weeklong training opportunity at The Children’s Hospital
for pediatricians in rural or small practices. The Locum
Tenens service provides coverage for the community
pediatrician’s practice, while the pediatrician obtains a
self-directed learning experience with various specialties
and programs at TCH.

Education
The Section has developed a curriculum for pediatric
trainees regarding care in community settings (in preparation for pediatric practice) and care of underserved
children. The Section has also developed a cross-cultural
healthcare curriculum and learning community for both
faculty and residents utilizing workshops, small group
discussions, noon conferences, and a Web site to assist
providers and staff to develop their knowledge base and
skills to provide culturally sensitive and responsive health
care for racial and ethnic minority families. With regard
to residency training, the Section oversees the continuity
practice experience for pediatric residents. Residents spend
an average of a half-day per week over their three years
of residency in a community-based general pediatric
clinic or practice. Half of the residents have their continuity experience in the general pediatric clinic on The
Children’s Hospital campus; one fourth are in the Denver
Health Authority Neighborhood Health Centers; and
one fourth are in private practices. The Section oversees

Critical Care Medicine
Clinical Services
The clinical mission of the Section of Critical Care
Medicine at The Chilren’s Hospital is to provide the
highest quality of care available to children with single- and multi-organ system failure. Care is provided
via an integrative approach, utilizing the expertise of
pediatric intensivists, anesthesiologists, pulmonologists, cardiologists, and other medical subspecialists, as
well as pediatric and subspecialty surgeons, to provide
the most technologically advanced medical support and

is a pediatric subspecialty-residency-training program
that was accredited by the ACGME in 1999 and reaccredited in 2004. The PEM fellowship is a three-year
program and accepts applications from either pediatric
emergency medicine residents or emergency medicine
residents. The overall goal of the program is to create
experts in the clinical application of pediatric emergency
medicine including the assessment of the acutely ill or
injured child. More specific clinical knowledge is gained
through eight required rotations and several elective
rotations in different subspecialty areas. The fellowship
program also includes research and teaching components.

Education
Our Section has a strong commitment to educating and
training the next generation of pediatricians. Our faculty teach and mentor fellows, residents, and medical
students. Our three-year, ACGME-accredited fellowship
training program in pediatric gastroenterology (funded
by the NIH) provides a unique academic, clinical, and
research experience for two fellows per year. We provide
a myriad of continuing education for local and regional
pediatricians. We also provide training for pediatric and
other residents in inpatient, outpatient, and procedural
aspects of pediatric gastroenterology, hepatology and
nutrition. Additional development of clinical and/or basic
research skills is available. Pediatric gastroenterology,
hepatology and nutrition is an important part of the
pediatric clerkship curriculum for third-year medical
students at the University of Colorado Denver School
of Medicine. Our faculty provide a lecture in gastroenterology as part of the clerkship’s core lecture series and
supervise medical students on the inpatient pediatric services. A fourth-year medical student elective in pediatric
gastroenterology, hepatology and nutrition emphasizes
the outpatient evaluation and management of common
and uncommon clinical problems, as well as time on the
inpatient and consultation service and GI Procedure Unit.

General Academic Pediatrics
Clinical Services
The Children’s Hospital (TCH) and UCDSOM
Department of Pediatrics have had a long-term commitment to integrating primary care for low-income children with the academic missions of training and clinical
research. Currently there are two primary care clinics
at TCH: the Child Health Clinic (CHC) and the Special
Special CHC Programs
The Reach Out and Read program allows clinicians the
opportunity to supply books to parents of children aged
six months to five years in order to encourage the development of reading. Volunteers read to children in busy

Book,” which are given to parents of clinic patients.
The CHC delivers longitudinal, comprehensive primary
care for underserved children. Currently, we are seeing
19,000 visits per year; however, due to space and staff
limitations, we have implemented restrictions on accepting new children into the practice. Many of our patients
have chronic illness such as asthma, seizures, behavioral
problems (ADHD, depression, learning difficulties, language delay), so that they have a high level of medical
need. We are now only accepting newborns who were
delivered at University Hospital as well as siblings of
existing patients, or patients of TCH subspecialists who
request that we provide primary care in order to better coordinate care. The overwhelming majority of the
children have public insurance: 68% have Medicaid,
9% SCHIP (Child Health Plan), 14% commercial insurance, and 6% are uninsured. The CHC has an integrated
mental and behavioral health program that provides
on-site evaluation and therapy, screening for postpartum
depression, and “Ages and Stages” formalized developmental screening and referrals, as well as an asthma
quality care initiative, all of which also instruct our
trainees in better health care practices. The CHC is the
major primary care training site for the Department. The
faculty trains 42 residents during their weekly continuity
clinic site for group practice; and 36 pediatric residents,
24 family medicine residents, and 24 physician assistant
students in monthly general ambulatory care rotations
per year. In the mornings, the clinic is staffed with three
faculty, while the afternoons require five faculty to cover
the additional patients seen in group practice.

These materials encourage parents to take an active and
positive approach to teaching their children.
The Special Care Clinic offers comprehensive primary
and consultative care to children with special health care
needs, including children with developmental disabilities, genetic disorders, chronic medical problems, and
prematurity. The clinic is staffed by six physicians who
are specialists in pediatrics (with subspecialty training
in a variety of fields, including genetics, neurodevelopmental disabilities, developmental-behavioral pediatrics,
and neonatology), as well as three experienced pediatric
nurse practitioners. It has a child psychiatrist experienced in caring for children with dual diagnoses (cognitive disabilities plus psychiatric issues). Three pediatric
residents have their continuity clinic experience in
Special Care Clinic. The clinic has the support of nutrition and respiratory therapy at all clinic sessions and has
therapists available to assess children during some clinic
sessions. It is supported by four nurses, a social worker,
an administrative assistant, and a full-time scheduler. As
well as providing primary care to children with special
needs who live in the Denver and Aurora metropolitan
areas, the clinic also provides consultative care and
schedules complex coordinated appointments to multiple other specialists within TCH for patients who travel
from many of the surrounding states and rural areas of
Colorado.

Infectious Deseases
Clinical Services
The Section of Infectious Diseases (ID) provides excellent inpatient and outpatient clinical services by nationally recognized physicians and performs cutting-edge
research in the fields of infectious diseases and HIV.
The Infectious Diseases consultation team is on call 24
hours a day, 7 days a week. In 2008, the team consulted
on and followed approximately 400 inpatients at The
Children’s Hospital. The ID service provides telephone
consultations to physicians in the Rocky Mountain
Region and receives more than 100 phone consultations a week. The Infectious Diseases consultation team
meets daily with the microbiology and virology laboratories and hosts a weekly case management conference.
Outpatients are seen weekly in Infectious Diseases and
HIV Clinics and monthly in the Sinus Clinic. The HIV
clinic is the site for the Denver Pediatric AIDS Clinical
Trials Unit, funded by the NIH. The Children’s Hospital
Immunodeficiency Program (CHIP) provides unique
family-centered care for children and adolescents with
HIV. CHIP’s multidisciplinary team offers comprehensive medical care coupled with counseling and social
support to families in the Rocky Mountain Region.
ID faculty conduct a wide variety of basic science and
clinical research focusing on vaccine-preventable diseases, international health, TB, pediatric viral infections,
emerging viral respiratory diseases, Kawasaki disease,
Staph toxin diseases, and HIV infection.
Research
The Section of Infectious Diseases has an active basic
and translational research program with more than five
million dollars of federal funding yearly. The Section
has 22 full-time faculty engaged in a broad range of
research, including respiratory viral pathogens, enteric
viral diseases, international health, HIV, TB, Kawasaki
disease, Staph toxin disease, and vaccine-preventable
diseases. We participate in multiple national clinical
trials of antiviral agents, antiretroviral medications,
and vaccines.

Education
The Section of Infectious Diseases is committed to educating and training medical students, physician assistants, residents, and fellows. Our faculty and fellows
have won numerous teaching awards for their outstanding educational contributions. Our Section has maintained an active and highly respected fellowship training
program for the past 30 years. Our three-year ACGME
fellowship training program provides comprehensive ID
clinical experience in addition to broad research opportunities. Training for residents in pediatric infectious
diseases is provided through clinical consultations to the
ward team and outpatient clinics. A month-long elective
provides a more intensive experience as an infectious
diseases consultant and a brief period in the clinical
microbiology laboratory. Training for students begins
with core lectures for third-years taking the pediatric
clerkship. An elective in pediatric infectious diseases is
available for fourth-year medical students who have
completed a pediatric clerkship.

Education
The Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Fellowship Training
Program is sponsored by the University of Colorado
Denver and The Children’s Hospital. This is a three-year
postdoctoral training program in neonatal-perinatal
medicine and is approved by the Residency Review
Committee of the Accreditation Council for Graduate
Medical Education. The program is directed by Thomas
Parker, MD. Fellows are supervised by faculty within
the Section of Neonatology and the division of Perinatal
Medicine and Research. The program includes 12
months of clinical training with 21 months of research
activity. The program is primarily interested in helping
trainees develop successful careers, based on excellence
in research, scholarship, and clinical medicine. The
Section also trains pediatric residents and offers electives
to fourth-year medical students.

To date, the series has included the following topics: designing a good research question, assessing the
sensitivity and specificity of outcome measures, costeffectiveness measures, and applying the CONSORT
(Consolidated Standards of Reporting Trials) guidelines
when designing and publishing research.
For additional education outreach, COR has published with TCH surgical faculty monthly research
seminars in Methods and Applications in Outcomes
Research, sponsored by COHO. COR has also sponsored a training class on “Planning and Facilitating
Focus Groups” facilitated by researchers from
Denver Health.
For primary care clinicians, Dr. Kempe continues to
direct the Primary Care Research Fellowships, which
support mentored research training for 10 primary care
physicians per year, with two to three per year generally
coming from TCH. This fellowship program provides
didactic instruction in research methods, public health,
clinical teaching, and administrative skills, as well as
substantial protected time for research.
The Clinical Faculty Scholars Program, directed by
COHO, is designed to assist promising junior faculty
members to obtain career development awards or project support in outcomes research after their research
training. Dr. Kempe is involved in mentorship and the
grant writing curriculum. Since initiation in 2004,
there have been three Scholars with TCH affiliations:

The Colorado Pediatric Stroke Program (CPSP) at the
University of Colorado Denver and The Children’s
Hospital serves patients with arterial ischemic stroke,
hemorrhagic stroke, and cerebral sinovenous thrombosis. Formally established in 2007, the CPSP provides a
variety of services to pediatric stroke patients and their
families in a comprehensive multidisciplinary setting.
The goals of the CPSP are three-fold:
1.Establish and provide coordinated state-of-the-art
care for pediatric stroke in the Mountain States
Research
The CTO offers a full menu of services, including
assistance with study design; submissions for institutional approval (institutional review boards and clinical
research centers); budget development, contract negotiation and grants management; study site and patient
recruitment; and study nursing and study monitoring.
In addition, the CTO serves as a liaison between clinical
investigators and other institutional resources, e.g., biostatistics, laboratories, radiology, and pharmacy.

and developmental disabilities into their communities.
The IDDRC’s research is based upon the premise that
successful treatments can be devised only if the genetic,
molecular, cellular, and behavioral parameters of a condition are known and if the mechanism of pathogenesis
of the disease is understood.
Investigators of the IDDRC come from the
Department of Pediatrics and from several other
departments within the School of Medicine, including Pharmacology, Cell and Developmental Biology,
Cardiology, Neurology, Psychiatry, and Medicine. The
IDDRC provides support for fundamental, translational
and clinical research to its investigators through core
facilities. The core facilities provide investigators access
to and expertise in complex technologies. The research
cores are: (1) Translational Nexus, a patient registry,
database and biobank focused on neurodevelopmental

Pediatric Heart Lung Center
Program Overview
The Pediatric Heart Lung Center (PHLC) was initiated
12 years ago in order to develop innovative approaches
towards the investigation and treatment of severe cardiac and pulmonary disorders in children. The overall
purpose of the Center is to establish a multidisciplinary
program to stimulate new understanding and novel
strategies for the treatment of childhood cardiovascular
and pulmonary diseases. The approach is to foster the
integration of basic and clinical sciences, as well as the
development of multidisciplinary approaches to these
diseases, by integrating key personnel from different
sections within the Department of Pediatrics. The rationale for the program is that:
1.current treatments of many life-threatening cardiovascular pulmonary diseases are limited by a lack
of insight into the fundamental pathophysiologic
mechanisms underlying these disorders;
2.insufficient dialogue between scientists involved
with basic laboratory research and physicians
primarily involved in patient care and clinical
research limits the bedside applications of new
therapies and impedes the design of clinically
relevant bench research;

The Barbara Davis Center
for Childhood Diabetes
Clinical Services
The Barbara Davis Center for Childhood Diabetes
(BDC) provides care to the majority of children with
diabetes in the State of Colorado and Rocky Mountain
Region, as well as consultation for children throughout
the U.S. Some of the pediatric faculty at the BDC are
also members of the Department of Pediatrics Section
of Endocrinology and provide inpatient diabetes care at
The Children’s Hospital. The BDC combines research
into the immunopathogenesis, prevention, and treatment
of type 1 (insulin-dependent) diabetes mellitus with a
state-of-the-art clinical program that brings to its patients
clinical care aimed at both normalizing their daily lives
and preventing long-term complications of diabetes.
Comprehensive clinical care and continuing patient
and family education are key components in the clinical
program. Newly diagnosed patients and their families
are given intensive and comprehensive individual training, care, and counseling on a day-to-day basis from
clinical care team members, in addition to classes with
other new-onset patients and families. All newly diagnosed
patients and their families receive a copy of the “Pink
Panther” – First Book for Understanding Diabetes –
written by one of our clinicians, Dr. H. Peter Chase.
Providers remain available 24 hours a day, 7 days a
week for changes in regimens, emergencies, and illnesses.
All patients are routinely seen on a quarterly basis, and
with each visit an opportunity for further patient education and family consultation is provided. Comprehensive
care includes nutritional counseling, individual and
family-centered opportunities for psychosocial counseling, periodic cardiovascular and kidney assessment, and
routine eye exams by a diabetes specialist at the Center’s
Eye Clinic. In addition, all patients and their relatives
are offered the opportunity to participate in clinical
and research studies. Patient education continues with
opportunities for participation in local support groups,
special outings and parties arranged by the Guild of
the Children’s Diabetes Foundation, and attendance
at annual summer camps sponsored by the Colorado
American Diabetes Association. The BDC also offers a
number of special one-day courses each year, including
the College Workshop and Grandparents Workshop.
Research
Research into the immunopathogenesis of type 1 diabetes spans both basic and clinical research, with major
emphasis on genetic animal models of type 1 diabetes
and on type 1 diabetes of humans. The Barbara Davis
Center’s faculty has pioneered islet biochemistry, immunobiology of islet beta cell transplantation, identification
of individuals at risk for developing type 1 diabetes, and
trials for the prevention of diabetes and its complications. Locally, the Center initiated DAISY (Diabetes
Autoimmunity Study in the Young), which screened and
genotyped newborns and their families in the Denver
area and continues to follow subjects for antibody
positivity and development of type 1 diabetes. With the
screening of more than 30,000 newborns for genetic risk
of type 1 diabetes at birth, the first study addressing the
development of autoimmunity in children from the general population continues to publish new findings in collaboration with the Colorado School of Public Health.
The BDC also follows the largest, longest standing
national cohort of twins with diabetes in the U.S., with
the BDC Twin Family Study.
The research division is home to the Diabetes and
Endocrine Research Center, an NIH-funded program
that facilitates diabetes research by providing biomedical
core facilities, pilot and feasibility grants, and education
and training programs for faculty, research fellows, graduate and undergraduate students. The NIDDK-supported
Diabetes Endocrinology Research Centers (DERCs) and
Diabetes Research and Training Centers (DRTCs) are
part of an integrated program of diabetes and related
endocrinology and metabolism research. Centers provide
increased, cost-effective collaboration among multidisciplinary groups of investigators at institutions with an
established, comprehensive research base in diabetes and
related areas of endocrinology and metabolism.

National Jewish Health
Clinical Services
The pediatric program at National Jewish Health –
NJ4kids – provides a continuum of care from outpatient
to inpatient services, with a major emphasis on asthma
and other allergic diseases (atopic dermatitis, allergic
rhinosinusitis, food allergy, and eosinophilic gastrointestinal disorders), immune system disorders and recurrent
infections, pulmonary disorders, rheumatological disorders, and behavioral health issues.
A major focus has been the integration of care in the
areas of allergy, asthma, immunology, and rheumatology at National Jewish and TCH. National Jewish
faculty members have weekly clinics in allergy, asthma,
sinusitis, and eosinophilic gastrointestinal diseases at

Education
National Jewish Health and the UCDSOM Department
of Pediatrics offer an ACGME-certified, two-year
fellowship in pediatric allergy and immunology, which
sponsors two to three fellows each year. Training for
pediatric residents takes place in a single, integrated
academic program at National Jewish Health, the
University of Colorado Hospital, the Barbara Davis
Center for Childhood Diabetes, and The Children’s
Hospital. An elective in pediatric allergy and immunology is available for fourth-year medical students who
have successfully completed a pediatric clerkship. Caseby-case teaching is conducted in inpatient clinics, with
four different assignments: Pediatric Day Program and
Medical Officer of the Day at National Jewish; Pediatric
Clinics at The Children’s Hospital; and Adult Allergy
Consult Service at UCD. Teaching also takes place in
our outpatient clinics at National Jewish, TCH, and
UCD: Outpatient Pediatric Allergy and Immunology
Clinic, Adult Allergy Continuity Clinics and Consult
Service, Immunodeficiency Clinic, Dermatology/Atopic
Dermatitis, Rheumatology, and ENT Clinics. We also
use formal teaching conferences.
