Department of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine II

Director:

  • Prof. Dr. Ulrich Stephani


The Department of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine II is part of the Universitätskinderklinik zu Kiel (Department of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine I) founded in 1906, and has operated as an independent department since 1974. It is the only independent paediatric neurological university department in a large radius of over 300 km. The Department is equipped with the latest treatment and diagnostic facilities for all neurological conditions in children and adolescents.

A special feature in the health care and research here is a "public private partnership" led cooperation with the Northern German Epilepsy Centre for Children and Adolescents.

The research focus in the Department of Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine II is on genetics and the functional imaging of epilepsies. Doctors and scientists in the Department collaborate with many working groups in Europe, the USA and Australia.
