Geoffrey Rosenthal, MD, PhD, brings experience in cardiac critical care, research, teaching and children's health care advocacy.
This summer, Geoffrey Rosenthal, MD, PhD, left the Cleveland Clinic and joined the Children's Hospital as the new director of the Pediatric and Congenital Heart Program and professor of pediatrics at the School of Medicine. He brings experience in cardiac critical care, research, teaching and children's health care advocacy. Working with partners within and beyond the Medical Center, Rosenthal is leading the development of a comprehensive program to meet the needs of children in Maryland and the region.
In addition to his clinical work, Rosenthal is on the Pediatric Advisory Committee of the US Food and Drug Administration to support the evaluation of medications for children. And Rosenthal also brings great enthusiasm to his work. Soon after arriving, he worked with the UMMS Foundation to recruit a team of about 30 runners from among the UMMC staff to be part of the Baltimore Running Festival in October, to raise awareness in the community about the Children's Hospital. Rosenthal was on the team, competing in the main event. He ran 26.2 miles, crossing the finish line proudly in a shirt with the UM Children's Hospital logo, with his son at his side.
