Kevin Y. Ching, M.D.
Pediatric Emergency Medicine
An emergency department is a place where urgent decisions happen by definition. As a physician and teacher, I have devoted my career to developing new models of clinical curriculum for practitioners-in-training that prepares them for the unexpected. I am humbled every day by the experiences of the children and families with whom I work to achieve a successful health outcome-in the short, urgent term, but also towards long-term health and stability.
