Victoria Marie Parente
Assistant Professor of Pediatrics

I am a pediatric hospitalist and health services researcher with faculty appointments in the Division of Hospital Medicine. My career to date has been dedicated to reducing racial and ethnic health disparities through academic and advocacy efforts including medical education, involvement in departmental committees, recruitment and mentorship of under-represented in medicine trainees, health equity research, and community or institutional initiatives to reduce disparities. My current research focuses on improving communication between families and clinicians with a focus on building partnership and collaboration. I am interested in studying and testing effective strategies to combat bias, empower caregivers, and address inequities while providing high-quality and evidence-based care in the inpatient setting.
