The University of Chicago began in 1890, it was not until 1898 that the University became involved in medicine. Under President William Rainey Harper, Chicago temporarily became affiliated with the Rush Medical College with "the distinct purpose of the University to establish such a Medical School when funds shall have been provided" (Decennial address by Harper, 1902).Comer Children's is staffed by close to 170 highly trained pediatricians, as well as specially trained nurses and caring support staff.Our team of healthcare professionals works together to provide general and specialty medical care for newborns to young adults.As a center of medical training, the pediatricians of tomorrow--medical students, residents, and fellows--play an important role in caring for children.
