Wendy L. Hobson-Rohrer, MD, MSPH has focused her career as a general pediatrician on education and caring for the underserved. She is the Executive Medical Director of the South Main Clinic whose mission is to provide high quality, comprehensive, and cost-effective care to underserved families in our community and care to specialized populations that lack access to appropriate services while sharing community resources.

Dr. Hobson-Rohrer cares for a large number of children and youth with special health care needs, including those with cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, cardiac diseases, and other genetic disorders. She has focused her clinical research and advocacy efforts on caring for these children and their families. With a five-year Healthy Tomorrows Partnership for Children grant, she developed Niños Especiales/Familias Fuertes (Special Children/Strong Families), a support group system for families with Latino children with special health care needs.

Dr. Hobson-Rohrer is the Associate Vice President for Health Sciences Education at the University of Utah. She has served nationally as the Chair of the CATCH (Community Access to Child Health) committee of the American Academy of Pediatrics, Co-Chair of the APA Serving the Underserved Special Interest Group and Pediatric Academic Societies Workshop Chair.
