A. Paige Davis Volk graduated summa cum laude with a Bachelor’s Degree in Biochemistry and Chemistry from Cornell College. She obtained her M.D. from The University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine in 2000. Dr. Volk remained at The University of Iowa for her residency training in Pediatrics and her fellowship training in Pediatric Critical Care. She was recruited to join the faculty of The University of Iowa upon completion of her postgraduate training in 2006. Dr. Volk was appointed Assistant Professor in 2008 and served as Physician Leader for UIHC Schwartz Center Rounds from 2011 to 2015. She was Chief Pediatric Advisor to the Hospital Incident Commander for Disaster Management from 2010 to 2015 and Director of the Pediatric Critical Care Fellowship Program from 2014 to 2015. Dr. Volk was recruited to join the faculty at The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in 2015 and was promoted to Associate Professor. She is currently the Medical Director for the Children’s Medical Center PICU at the Plano campus. Dr. Volk also serves as the Medical Director for CMC Plano Respiratory Care Services and Physician Leader for CMC Plano Schwartz Center Rounds.
