Chris G. Markham, MD

Assistant Professor of Clinical Pediatrics

Phase 2, Suite 4900
705 Riley Hospital Dr.

Indianapolis, IN 46202


Dr. Chris Markham was introduced to the field of medicine as a young child by proxy via his brother's navigation through life with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy.  He grew up in the San Francisco bay area and moved to St. Louis for formal training. As a trainee, his passion focused on the improvements in care that can be leveraged through implementation science and changing systems of care delivery.  He is ecstatic to continue his career as a pediatric intensivist with IUSM.

Most of his free time is spent with his wife and three children. Otherwise, he is an efficiency nerd, bookworm, hiker, and amateur powerlifter.
