EDUCATING COMPASSIONATE CAREGIVERS.

Pediatric Resident with patient

The Department of Pediatrics at Creighton University School of Medicine provides compassionate care to children and promotes an understanding of childhood disease by educating students, physicians, other health care providers and the public.

Hundreds of full-time and contributed services faculty, both in the Omaha area and Creighton’s regional Phoenix campus, are associated with our department. Pediatrics faculty members participate in clinical and basic science research projects funded by numerous organizations, foundations and grants.

Children’s Physicians, a joint venture between Creighton University and Children’s Hospital and Medical Center, employs general pediatricians at clinical sites throughout the Omaha area. Along with University of Nebraska Medical Center and Children’s Hospital and Medical Center, we also participate in a joint pediatric residency program through our combined expertise.
