Children's Specialty Group
Children's Specialty Group physicians have helped make Children's Hospital of Wisconsin one of the leading pediatric hospitals in the country. We have more than 500 physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants that have specific training in caring for children and leading Children's Hospital's nationally recognized programs.
All CSG physicians are board-certified or board-eligible in their area(s) of expertise and dedicate their entire practices to the care of children and adults with contenital conditions. As Medical College of Wisconsin employees, they also conduct research to improve patient care, and train tomorrow's physicians.
