Academic General Pediatrics

The Division of Academic General Pediatrics and Primary Care at Lurie Children’s treats children admitted for general medical care and provides consultations for complex pediatric medical issues without a clear diagnosis.


We provide top-quality care using a collaborative approach and innovative medical technology. Our experienced, multidisciplinary team includes board-certified attending physicians as well as specialized experts that focus on developmental and behavioral pediatrics as well as nutrition evaluation. 


We believe in family-centered care, which means we involve the whole family in a patient’s treatment plan. From bringing family members into care plan meetings, to providing support and distraction to a patient’s siblings, we do our best to help fit our care within your lifestyle.

Pediatric specialty care is available through this division for:

The division currently offers two-year pediatric fellowships for up to three general pediatricians. Fellows concentrate on acquiring research skills and may focus their efforts in a variety of areas including obesity, child protective services or ethic issues in medicine/pediatrics. 

Lurie Children's also provides primary care services in Chicago's Lincoln Park and Uptown neighborhoods. Through our new partnership with Town & Country Pediatrics, we also provide primary care at each of their locations. Learn more.
