Pediatricians Join Practice

Monday, October 24, 2016 -

Kathleen Kirksey, M.D., and Humaira Qasimyar, M.D., have established their practices with OU Children’s Physicians. They are both serving as chief residents of the section of General Pediatrics at the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine.

Kirksey and Qasimyar are board eligible in pediatrics and have been serving a pediatric residency at OU College of Medicine since 2013. 

Kirksey earned her medical degree at the University of Texas School of Medicine at San Antonio. She is a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics.

Qasimyar earned his medical degree at the University of Nebraska Medical School-Lincoln.

The pediatricians see patients in the OU Children’s Physicians Building, 1200 Children’s Avenue.

OU Children’s Physicians practice as part of OU Physicians, Oklahoma’s largest physician group. The group encompasses nearly every child and adult medical specialty. 

Nearly 200 of these specialists committed their practices to the care of children. The majority of OU Children’s Physicians are board certified in children’s specialties. Many provide pediatric-specific services unavailable elsewhere in the state. Some have pioneered surgical procedures or innovations in patient care that are world firsts. 

OU Children’s Physicians see patients in their offices at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center and other cities around Oklahoma. When hospitalization is necessary, they often admit patients to The Children’s Hospital at OU Medical Center. Many children with birth defects, critical injuries or serious diseases who can’t be helped elsewhere come to OU Children’s Physicians. Oklahoma doctors and parents rely on OU Children’s Physicians depth of experience, nationally renowned expertise and sensitivity to children’s emotional needs.
