Rachel Selekman, M.D., M.A.S., graduated from Cornell University and earned her medical degree from New York University School of Medicine. She completed her Urology residency at the University of California, San Francisco and developed interests in pediatric urology. She completed her fellowship in Pediatric Urology at the University of California, San Francisco. During her fellowship training, Dr. Selekman also completed her Master’s Degree in Advanced Science and obtained rigorous training in the epidemiologic and biostatistical methods of human subjects research.
Dr. Selekman was drawn to Pediatric Urology due to the lasting impact she could have on children’s views of a healthy self as well as the special relationship between a physician and a family. Her research focuses on the implications of antibiotic utilization in the pediatric patient. This includes not only the efficacy of this treatment at the individual level, but also the consequences of treatment, such as antibiotic resistance, for both the individual and for the population.
