Message from the Chair

Terence L. Zach, M.D.The mission of Creighton University's Department of Pediatrics is to provide compassionate care to children, promote an understanding of childhood diseases, and educate students, physicians, other health care providers and the public.

Our faculty physicians are dedicated to the training of students and residents, while providing complete services for infants and children from well-baby visits to quaternary care.

Several joint divisions exist between Creighton University and the University of Nebraska Medical Center.  These two schools of medicine have combined expertise to sponsor a Joint Pediatric Residency Program, which trains future physicians with the necessary skills, knowledge and judgment to serve pediatric needs of our community.

Thank you for taking the time to explore all that our department has to offer to medical students, residents, patients and their families.
