Message from the Chair

Thank you for visiting our Department of Pediatrics website!

We are excited about children from the smallest premature infant to the teenager and beyond. We strive for and achieve excellence in education of medical students, residents, and our pediatric colleagues. As a Medical School Department of Pediatrics, we practice real world pediatrics in a variety of ambulatory sites and inpatient facilities (Children’s Hospitals) with a broad range of pediatric medical and surgical subspecialists.

I am privileged to work with our talented staff and faculty who provide a positive, caring environment ideal for pediatric care and education. Texas Tech is a great place for care, education, and career opportunities.
