Michael Charles, M.D., has always had a passion for caring for people of all ages. He particularly enjoys working at Shriners Children's because he believes in the mission of providing compassionate care to children of all socioeconomic, cultural and ethnic backgrounds.

After studying human nutrition at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, he went on to complete both medical school and combined internal medicine/pediatrics residency training at UIC. Dr. Charles is passionate about promoting healthy lifestyle habits and also enjoys the management of complex health issues.

Outside of work, Dr. Charles spends a lot of time with his family. He likes learning new languages and frequently dreams about being a professional soccer player. Every year, he plays at the intramural soccer league with medical students, residents and other attendings.
