Terry Kind, MD, MPH
Associate Professor of Pediatrics
Director of Pediatric Medical Student Education
You might say I'm your kind of pediatrician, and I’ve been told I’m a kind person, but let’s move beyond my name! For about 10 years I’ve enjoyed serving as a general outpatient pediatrician to infants, children, and teens growing up in Southeast DC, at Children’s Health Center at MLK
. One of the many joys of outpatient pediatrics involves education… of patients and their families, plus the trainees in our office.
And when I’m not seeing patients, the focus on teaching and learning continues in my role as Director of Medical Student Education
at Children’s National, advising and facilitating the educational experiences for GW, Howard, and visiting students. Through this blog together we can delve into the answers to common and some uncommon pediatric career questions your peers have asked over the years.
But you may ask, does she do research
? My focus has been to better understand access to health information
on the internet and more recently to explore those gray areas of online professionalism
, medical school and education in the context of Web 2.0 (without intending to cross any boundaries myself!).
For a time I was a New Yorker, completing my pediatric residency and masters in public health at Columbia, medical school at Mount Sinai, and undergrad as a psychology major at sunny Cornell.
My life partner makes the world a better place conducting pediatric health services research for the federal government, and our 2 children teach us something new (playing drums, sketching anything, making wizard potions) everyday.If you want to submit a guest post, email PediatricCareer@childrensnational.org and please peruse our outstanding existing guest posts.
