To advance the practice of pediatric surgery through multi-institutional clinical studies focusing on high impact pediatric surgical diseases.

About Us

The Midwest Pediatric Surgery Research Consortium (MWPSC) was established by the Departments of Pediatric Surgery from 11 children’s hospitals with the mission of advancing the practice of pediatric surgery through high-quality multi-institutional clinical studies focusing on high impact pediatric surgical diseases with the goals of improving patient outcomes, developing best practices, and reducing health care expenditures. The close geographic locations and relationships between our sites and investigators allows for the timely creation and successful completion of collaborative studies
