About Dr. Levy:

Jason Levy received his MD from the Medical College of Georgia. He completed a residency in Pediatrics at Northwestern University Children’s Hospital and a fellowship in Pediatric Emergency Medicine at Boston Children’s Hospital.  Dr. Levy went on to receive additional training in pediatric point-of-care ultrasound and served as the Director of Emergency Ultrasound until 2014. He assumed the role of Associate Clinical Director in 2015 and now focuses on emergency department clinical operations.

Research Overview:

Dr. Levy’s initial research interests focused on two broad topics: children presenting with signs and symptoms of dehydration and the use of point-of-care ultrasound in the pediatric emergency department. He has recently focused his efforts on aspects of emergency department efficiency and clinical operations.
