Overview

Henri R. Ford, M.D., is vice president and chief of surgery at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA), Vice-Dean of Medical Education, Professor and Vice chair for clinical affairs in the Department of Surgery and at the Keck School of Medicine.
Dr. Ford was professor and chief of the Division of Pediatric Surgery and surgeon-in-chief at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh and the University Of Pittsburgh School Of Medicine prior to joining CHLA in January 2005.

Dr. Ford is a member of the Executive committee of the board of trustees of CHLA and a member of the board of directors of the University Children’s Medical Group. He is also a member of the Executive Leadership Team and the medical executive committee of CHLA. As surgeon-in-chief and vice president for Surgical and Perioperative Services, he oversees the entire perioperative services area at CHLA. Under his leadership, CHLA has developed a robust, state of the art minimally invasive surgery program.

As a professor in the Department of Surgery at the Keck School of Medicine, he is an important role model for young physicians and medical students. As the Vice Dean for Medical Education at the Keck School, Dr. Ford advances the medical school’s educational mission by promoting excellence in medical education as one of its highest priorities. Dr. Ford recently led a very successful accreditation visit for the MD program which resulted in the maximum eight-year, full accreditation from the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME), the best results achieved since a 10-year accreditation was granted in 1981. Dr. Ford’s current priorities include revising the Year III/IV medical student curriculum; strengthening research opportunities for medical students; and developing new sources of funding for medical student scholarships.
Dr. Ford has demonstrated “…truly exceptional leadership…” in pediatric surgery and has conducted the definitive studies on pediatric trauma in the United States and his investigative studies have generated new insights into the pathogenesis of necrotizing enterocolitis, the most common and the most lethal disorder affecting the gastrointestinal tract of newborn infants.
