Pei-Yuan Tsou, M.D., FAAP, was born in Taipei, Taiwan and is a graduate of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with a Bachelor of Science in psychology and Master of Arts in political science. She obtained her medical degree at the Chicago Medical School of Rosalind Franklin University.

Dr. Tsou works as a pediatric hospitalist, specifically caring for sick children with medical and surgical needs when they are admitted to the hospital. Dr. Tsou's passion is motivated by the bonds she builds with the children, learning and listening to their unique needs and laughing at their hilarious conversations when children say the cutest, darndest things. She enjoys all aspects of pediatric care and loves the dramatic improvements that children often make during the course of their hospitalizations. She has an interest in global health and has provided care in India, Guatemala and Dominca. She firmly believes in community and civic engagement and has worked with local elected officials in Illinois, Texas and Washington D.C. to advocate for policies aiming to improve children's health and well-being. She has published in the Journal of Pediatrics and presented at the annual meetings of the American Academy of Pediatrics and Pediatric Academic Society.

In her free time, Dr. Tsou enjoys travelling, playing volleyball, skiing and spending time outdoors with her family. She is fluent in Mandarin Chinese and English.
