Leadership and Administration

At the Emory Department of Pediatrics we are committed to giving children a bright future. We provide the highest quality state-of-the-art clinical care. What makes us different, however, is that we are also committed to improving how we care for children through scientific research as well as training the next generation of leaders in pediatrics. We are Georgia's largest multidisciplinary practice serving children not only through the Children's Physician Group, but also through Emory's alliances with Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, Grady Memorial Hospital, and Emory University Hospital Midtown .

There is a large group of administrators and other staff to support the faculty in their research, education and clinical care endeavors. Please reach out to any of the following people in the area you need assistance.
