Philosophy of Care

I am committed to the care of vulnerable populations of children at high risk for infectious diseases. Boston Children’s Hospital cares for many patients with compromised immune systems, and it is important for me to be able to work collaboratively with their teams to ensure that these individuals receive exceptional care to achieve the best possible outcomes.

PROFESSIONAL HISTORY

Sharma, MD, MPH received her medical degree at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, and completed general pediatrics residency and pediatric infectious diseases and immunology fellowship at University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Medical Center.
