The division includes thirteen surgical and medical specialties. Children's Medical Genetics Clinic, one of the largest in the region, focuses on diagnosing and managing genetic conditions caused by changes in the body's instructions, or genes.

She is board certified Medical Genetics, Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics, and has received additional training in administrative leadership. She is currently the Principal Investigator of several grant-funded studies, lectures extensively locally and nationally, and has an extensive track record of publications in the field. In 2013 she received the Shining Star/Physician of the Year Award from the MN DeafBlind Project, and has been recognized as a "Best Doctor" in the Twin Cities region for multiple years. Dr. Mendelsohn resides in Mendota Heights, Minn. with her husband, Jay and has two grown children.
