It is my strong belief that the role of a physician is not only to be responsible for the treatment and management of a patient’s care, but also to ease the difficult situations faced by patients and their families through honest conversation and unwavering support.

Philosophy of Care

My early fascination with studying human anatomy and my desire to work directly with people to improve their well-being inspired me to pursue a career in medicine.

Now, as a practicing pediatric interventional cardiologist, I not only explore my interests in cardiology and participate in the direct care of patients every day, but I also contribute my own thoughts to current practices in order to advance the field. This iterative process of medicine frequently challenges me to adapt my own practices as a physician to improve the quality of care used to treat patients. It is my strong belief that the role of a physician is not only to be responsible for the treatment and management of a patient’s care, but also to ease the difficult situations faced by patients and their families through honest conversation and unwavering support.

PROFESSIONAL HISTORY

Dr. Lisa Bergersen is an Associate Professor of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School and an Interventional Cardiologist in the Department of Cardiology at Boston Children’s Hospital (BCH). After graduating from the University of Vermont College of Medicine, she completed her pediatrics residency at St. Louis Children’s Hospital in Missouri. Dr. Bergersen pursued further training at BCH as a Fellow in pediatric cardiology, serving as Chief Fellow in 2003 before finishing her specialized training in interventional catheterization in 2004. While practicing medicine full time at BCH, Dr. Bergersen obtained a Master’s in Public Health at the Harvard School of Public Health. She has used her expertise in this area to establish patient safety and quality improvement projects in hospitals nationwide. In 2012, Dr. Bergersen pioneered the development of the first multi-center registry to record procedural and outcome measures. The project is currently instituting many important quality improvement initiatives in the field, such as reducing patient radiation exposure. In addition to serving as Principal Investigator on several cutting-edge clinical device studies, Dr. Bergersen is an established writer, having published extensively in pediatric interventional cardiology and co-authoring the leading catheterization manual used for training in the field.
