Kathleen Sullivan, MD
Fellow in Pediatric Anesthesiology
How long have you been a member of SPA?
Why did you join SPA?
I joined SPA to become part of a professional network of pediatric anesthesiologists.
I was born and raised in New Jersey and have had an interest in medicine for as long as I can remember. I studied biology at Loyola University Maryland where I graduated summa cum laude and went on to earn my MD from Rutgers (formerly UMDNJ) New Jersey Medical School. It was during my third and fourth year clerkships that I discovered my passion for anesthesiology, and I subsequently pursued my internship and residency at New York Presbyterian – Cornell, where I was chief resident and graduated this past June. I am now completing my fellowship in pediatric anesthesiology at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. It is in taking care of some of our most fragile and vulnerable patients in the pediatric setting that I have discovered some of the most challenging, yet rewarding aspects of being a physician.
