The Department of Pediatrics at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine is dedicated to understanding and promoting optimal child health and function. We value excellence and innovation in clinical and basic research, coordinated and comprehensive patient care, ongoing physician education, and soundly-based child advocacy. Our goal is to provide leadership in endeavors that promote the health of children locally, nationally, and internationally. Our faculty members lead in their respective specialties and cultivate a collaborative environment with their colleagues at Feinberg-affiliated Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago, Northwestern University, and other pediatricians around the country and the world.
