The main concern of the Department of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine is to treat seriously ill children and adolescents with chronic or acute conditions, in line with the principles of evidence-based medicine. Due to increasing specialization in pediatrics and adolescent medicine, it is necessary to have multidisciplinary teams of experts. 

The Department offers in-patient and out-patient care for all age categories, from tiny newborns to young adults, always, of course, with the close involvement of their families. The child itself is always the main focus.

The Department of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine is made up of five divisions, the Core Unit for Education, the various research areas and the general clinical areas. 

"As the largest pediatric institution in Austria, we are among the best in Europe, not only in terms of patient care but also in the field of research. Our main areas of research include neurosciences, rare diseases, infectiology, organ-specific diseases, coagulation disorders and autoimmune and endocrine diseases."
