Paediatric Department was initially established as a unit under the Department of Human Growth and Development in 1998 which consisted of three units i.e. Paediatric Unit, Obstetrics and Gynaecology Unit and Clinical Genetics Unit. In 2006, this was dissolved. Following that the Paediatric and Obstetrics and Gynaecology Department were established. This new Paediatric Department was relocated to the new complex of the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, Universiti Putra Malaysia (FMHS UPM) Serdang adjacent to Serdang Hospital in August 2006. Currently, the Paediatric Department has one unit which is the Clinical Immunology Unit.
