From providing well-child exams to managing complex chronic medical conditions, University Pediatric Clinic provides a range of services for infants, children, and adolescents. Our clinicians have experience and expertise to care for your child.

Services for Every Family

In addition to providing high-quality, general pediatric care, we offer a number of services to meet families’ diverse needs:

  • Families with health questions can call our Nurse Triage Line from 7am – 9pm (plus an on-call physician is available to answer urgent questions after hours).
  • Women who are breastfeeding can access guidance and support in our Lactation Clinic.
  • Families and children with chronic and complex medical conditions can get help navigating the health care system from our care coordinator. Our care coordinator arranges referrals, helps families apply for services like Medicaid and disability, and facilitates communication between families and health care providers. Se habla español.
  • Families whose children have special health care needs can access counseling and peer-to-peer emotional support through our Parent Partner program.
  • Patients who don't speak English can access interpretive & translation services, available by request.
  • Families looking for community support can connect with programs and resources through our social work services. These services are generally available during daytime business hours.

If your child needs a pediatric specialist, our team can refer your child to a full array of subspecialists.

Appointments

Please call us to schedule an appointment and to schedule routine well-child checkups. We do not accept walk-ins but we do provide same-day visits for urgent medical concerns for our established patients Saturdays (hours vary). We also offer to speak to a nurse 7 days a week from 7am-9pm (option 3).

University Pediatric Clinic- Clinic 6 scheduling hours are 8am-8pm Monday- Thursday and 8am-5pm Friday. We have patient appointments from 9am-7:40pm Monday- Thursday, 9am-4:40pm Fridays.

If your child has several medical issues or special health care needs, please ask to schedule longer appointments with the doctor.

We accept a variety of insurances and Medicaid.

Regular Checkups

Scheduling routine checkups is another important part of keeping children healthy. By maintaining a regular checkup schedule, we can help prevent illness, detect hidden problems, and monitor your child’s growth and development throughout infancy, childhood, and the teen years.

Outpatient Lactation Clinic

The new Outpatient Lactation Clinic will be located in the Pediatric Clinic (Clinic 6) on the main level at U of U Hospital. The clinic will be staffed primarily by the U’s International Board Certified Lactation Consultants (IBCLC’s) with oversight from both pediatric and OB/GYN physicians.

The clinic is open to all new moms, regardless of where they delivered. No insurance or referral from a primary care physician required. Appointments are available at the University Hospital Clinic 6 and South Jordan Health Center. For more information or to schedule an appointment with the University Hospital Clinic 6 Lactation Clinic, call 801-581-2205 or South Jordan Lactation Clinic at 801-213-4500.

Medical Education

We take training the next generation of health professionals seriously. We provide training to resident physicians (medical doctors completing additional training in pediatrics), medical students, and other health care trainees.

Ask about scheduling an appointment for your child in our Resident Clinic!

Appointments

Each of our pediatricians schedules appointments one to five half-days per week; one of these sessions may be in the evening. Please schedule your child’s check-ups and advance appointments with your primary care pediatrician.

If your child is ill or needs to be seen when your regular pediatrician is unavailable, you can ask to schedule an appointment with any pediatrician in the clinic that day, including faculty and resident physicians. Resident visits are supervised by a faculty pediatrician, who also may examine your child.

Scheduling

Patient Appointment Hours:

Monday-Thursday 9am - 7:40pm
Friday 9am - 4:40pm
Saturdays Hours Vary

*Hours may vary based on when providers are available.

Scheduling hours are 8am-8pm Monday- Thursday and 8am-5pm Friday.  We have Same Day Urgent Care for our established patients Saturdays (hours vary). We also offer to speak to a nurse 7 days a week from 7am-9pm (option 3).

To schedule Well-Child visits, please try to call 6 - 8 weeks in advance.

When you call for an appointment, our staff will ask for your child’s insurance information. Please have your child’s insurance information handy.

It's a good idea to plan on arriving at the University about 15 minutes before your child’s scheduled appointment to allow time for parking and check-in.

Please also be sure that we have your current daytime and evening telephone numbers and current address so we can contact you for appointment reminders, lab test results, etc. Also, please give us your email address so we can contact you for feedback on your visits (regular email should not be used for medical communications unless it's through MyChart).

MyChart

MyChart® allows online access to your child's immunization records, labs, and other results, as well as appointment requests and communication with your providers. Ask our front desk staff about signing up. Except in special circumstances (for example, if your child has a significant mental or developmental disability), parental access will be limited to appointments and immunization records after a child's 12th birthday.

Telephone Calls

You can reach all of our services by calling 801-581-2205. Our outstanding pediatric staff is available to answer questions about your child's health, to help with appointments, or to coordinate communications between you and your child's pediatrician. 

Nurses are also available to discuss urgent problems between 7am - 9pm. For urgent questions overnight, please call 801-581-2205 and ask to speak to the pediatrician on call.

Prescription Refills

When calling for a prescription refill, please have your pharmacy’s number and the prescription details ready.

Requesting Referrals

When requesting a referral, it's best to see your pediatrician first to be sure your child needs a referral and that your child is referred to the best service.

Well-Child Visits Immunization Schedule

Immunizations are important to keep your child healthy. Our recommended schedule below follows that of the American Academy of Pediatrics. Immunization schedules change from time to time. Your child’s pediatrician will notify you of any changes in the schedule or recommendations. Please bring your child’s immunization record to every visit in case dates need to be confirmed, new immunizations are needed, or your record needs to be updated.
