Dr. Harrington is a board-certified general pediatrician and father of an 18-year-old son with autism. He is a Robert Wood Johnson Fellow recipient for primary care research and completed a three-year HRSA mentoring program for general pediatric research.
Dr. Harrington moved to Virginia seven years ago and is currently the division director of General Academic Pediatrics at Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters. His group has more than 25,000 visits per year. His main interests are autism, obesity, behavioral problems, and the education of medical students and pediatric residents.
He is a professor of pediatrics at Eastern Virginia Medical School.
Dr. Harrington feels that providing care to patients in a team/family environment is pretty special. All of the physicians and care-staff are dedicated to making GAP the medical home for the parents and patients. He feels privileged to be among the doctors and staff that train many of the new physicians who enter into the CHKD community soon after their medical student and residency training.
