Physician Outreach Program

Children’s Physician Outreach Program is designed to create a more consistent experience for our community physicians and their staff members to build and maintain collaborative interactions and open communication. Within the program, designated physician liaisons are the primary contact for physicians, practice managers and staff within specific regions throughout Georgia.

These liaisons are available to address questions, concerns and issues, and they provide information about the Children’s services and programs. From identifying and addressing barriers to access, to arranging requested in-services, the liaisons are available to meet physicians' ongoing needs. Our ultimate goal is to foster positive relationships between Children’s, the medical staff and community physicians.
