As one of the nation’s first divisions dedicated to child abuse and the first accredited Child Abuse fellowship in Texas, the Division of Child Abuse Pediatrics at UT Health San Antonio is at the forefront of education, research and community outreach in this emerging field. Highly experienced faculty and clinicians evaluate patients at 3 regional hospitals, in our outpatient clinic Center for Miracles, and through an innovative online consultation program established for Child Protective Services. We evaluate >3000 children each year for suspected physical abuse, sexual abuse and all types of neglect.

Pay it forward: school children give back with donations of teddy bears for children at Center for Miracles.


Our fellowship is an adventure in learning, life, and teamwork!
