Kristen T. Leeman | Professional History

I received my MD from University of Virginia and completed my residency in Pediatrics at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I then completed my Neonatology Fellowship at the Harvard Neonatal-Perinatal Fellowship Program at Boston Children’s Hospital and was honored to serve as Chief Fellow during my last year of training. I am the Associate Medical Director of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Boston Children’s Hospital and an Assistant Professor at Harvard Medical School. I lead a team focused on improving the safety and quality of care provided to critically ill newborns as the Director of Quality for Newborn Medicine. I am also dedicated to trainee education and serve as the Program Director of the Harvard Neonatal-Perinatal Fellowship Program and Co-Director of the Harvard Newborn Medicine Summer Student Research Program. My research focuses on basic science discoveries that bridge newborn medicine and lung stem cell biology.

I work with a multidisciplinary team in the Neonatal-Intensive Care Unit to provide the best evidence-based, family-focused clinical care to each patient to achieve the best possible outcomes. I focus on clinical excellence and innovation and translating scientific discoveries into quality care at the bedside.
