John Strand



Medical School:

St. Louis University School of Medicine


Stony Brook Children's Hospital

Area of Interest:

Physician well-being, patient satisfaction, communication


Cognitive Labor Burden from Household Responsibilities Among Academic Pediatricians

Reducing Overnight Vital Signs Measurements in Low-Risk Patients

Favorite thing about the program:

I feel a lot of investment from Amanda (our wonderful P.D.) and all of my mentors in my development -- helping me curate a fellowship experience according to my interests and what will support my desired growth.

Post-fellowship plans:

Post-fellowship plans are in formation, so stay tuned. 🙂  Almost certainly I'll be in an academic center working with residents and students.

Favorite thing about New Orleans:

My favorite part of New Orleans is its citizens' zest for life.  It has been so easy to build community in this town because "New Orleanians" are invested in loving life and fully experiencing it with friends (old and new!).
