About Us

The University of Louisville Department of Pediatrics is ALL about kids and we're all around the region. Our faculty physicians make up the vast majority of the Kosair Children's Hospital medical staff, you will also find them in exam rooms at UofL Physicians offices, newborn nurseries, emergency rooms in major medical centers across the commonwealth and in southern Indiana.  Our faculty physicians are hard at work in University of Louisville research labs and in lecture halls where medical students learn to become pediatricians. In fact, many of Kentucky's practicing pediatricians earned their medical degree here at the University of Louisville Department of Pediatrics.  All of the UofL Department of Pediatrics' faculty are  professors and researchers at the UofL School of Medicine.
