Norm Christopher, MD
Chair of Pediatrics

I appreciate this opportunity to share the excitement that I feel about our pediatric residency program, as well as the accredited fellowship programs offered at Akron Children’s Hospital.

One of the most distinctive characteristics of Akron Children's Hospital is its enduring focus on mission: 

These principles guide us in all that we do, whether providing evaluation and treatment for our patients and their families, or establishing an environment where our clinical and educational programs can thrive.

As a free-standing tertiary care children's hospital, we are committed to providing high-quality health care for our patients, and to advocate strongly for issues critical to the families we serve. We are a full service medical and surgical pediatric facility that cares for patients from a 26-county referral area. Our hospital's leadership supports the professional growth and development of our house staff, a commitment that is stronger than ever.

I am proud to be a part of this organization and am pleased that you chose to learn more about the educational opportunities at Akron Children's Hospital. We hope that you will make time to visit with us, to share in our excitement and future progress.
