Dr. Derek Ching

Born and raised in Honolulu, I ventured out to the Midwest to receive my undergraduate degree from Creighton University and then graduated from the Creighton University School of Medicine. Eight years is a long time away from family, friends, and the ocean, so I was super excited to be able to return home for my Pediatric Residency at the Kapiolani Medical Center for Women and Children. I founded Children’s Doctors in 2007 and feel blessed that I’ve been able to learn and grow with my patients all these years. I’m passionate about health, fitness, and food—when I’m not in the office you can usually find me outdoors, in the gym, or in my kitchen! In my spare time, I enjoy fishing, diving, surfing, golfing, cooking, traveling, and spending time with my family and friends, especially my 2 rambunctious sons.
