Pediatrics Oakland - Meet Our Faculty

Welcome Message from our Chief of Pediatrics

On behalf of our entire department and our comprehensive care teams, welcome to Kaiser Permanente East Bay Pediatrics! Since 1957, our department and Kaiser Permanente have prioritized resident education through our unique and diverse learning environment. With dedicated pediatric faculty in outpatient, inpatient, subspeciality, surgical, emergency and critical care disciplines, we are proud of our mission to educate tomorrow’s pediatric providers. Whether at our Oakland Medical Center (a member of the Children’s Hospital Association and the National Association of Children’s Hospitals and Related Institution), or at any of our ambulator, community or affiliated sites, our residents and faculty together reflect our passion and drive for excellence in the academic clinical learning environment. Our focus is on collaborative learning driven by inquire, best practices and continuous improvement. We are proud of our faculty and resident accomplishments and look forward to continued growth and success.
