Division Chief's Message

Welcome to the website of the Division of Pediatric Surgery at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine’s Department of Surgery. Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago is the pediatric-surgery training facility for our division, and has been deeply involved over the years in pediatric surgical education. In fact, Lurie Children’s boasts the second oldest pediatric surgery training program in the United States. Pediatric training requirements for residents in general surgery at the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine are fulfilled here. The training rotations vary in length according to program requirements, but all provide a full range of pediatric experience in the specialty. We are also the primary training site for approved subspecialty fellowship programs in Pediatric General Surgery and Surgical Critical Care.

Thank you for your interest in our division. We invite you to contact us with your comments and questions
