Our Leadership


Margaret Chase, MD

Residency Program Director

I grew up in Alexandria, Virginia. I fell in love with the Med/Peds program at OSU/NCH. I was drawn by the people and the opportunity for such great training. Through residency, Med/Peds training gave me immense preparation and appreciation for the diversity of patient issues and management. I became program director in 2014.
