A Message from the Chair

Stephanie D. Davis, MD
Stephanie D. Davis, MD

The Department of Pediatrics at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine is a national leader in medical education, research, clinical care, and advocacy. Our physician-scientists and clinicians work from bench to bedside to deliver the best possible care to children, regardless of medical complexity or a family’s ability to pay. Our faculty teach a modern, innovative curriculum so education more closely resembles practice. Our residents and medical students have the passion and talent it takes to be excellent physicians. Our physicians are tireless advocates for children and families throughout the state and beyond.

As Chair, I have great pride in our mission and our accomplishments. Together, we develop and deliver treatments and cures to help children everywhere. I am excited to return to my home state and promote child health throughout North Carolina.
