Christopher Landrigan | Professional History

Christopher P. Landrigan, MD, MPH is the Chief of General Pediatrics at Boston Children’s Hospital, Director of the Sleep and Patient Safety Program at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and the William Berenberg Professor of Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School. He was a founding member of the Harvard Work Hours, Health, and Safety Group, and the founding chair of the Pediatric Research in Inpatient Settings (PRIS) Network, a collaboration of over 100 pediatric hospitals that conducts multi-center research and improvement projects.

Dr. Landrigan has led a series of major studies on the epidemiology of medical errors, and interventions designed to reduce their incidence. His most important work has been focused on developing reliable patient safety measurement tools, and improving the organization of residency programs and academic medical centers. His work on the relationship between resident work hours, sleep, and patient safety contributed to national changes in resident work hour standards. More recently, he led the development of I-PASS, a multi-faceted handoff and communication improvement program. He has authored over 150 publications in the medical literature, and has received numerous awards for his research, teaching, leadership, and innovation.
