Jeffrey B. Anderson MD, MPH, is an assistant professor of pediatrics with the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine and holds a joint appointment with the Heart Institute and the James M. Anderson Center for Clinical Excellence at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.

Dr. Anderson obtained both his medical degree and his Masters in Public Health from the University of Utah School of Medicine. He completed an internship in internal medicine and pediatrics at the North Carolina Memorial Hospital followed by a pediatrics residency at the North Carolina Children’s Hospital in Chapel Hill, NC. Following a year serving as pediatric chief resident in Chapel Hill, he completed his pediatric cardiology fellowship and advanced training in electrophysiology at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center.

Dr. Anderson’s research interests include nutrition in congenital heart disease, syncope in the pediatric population and application of quality improvement methodology to improve outcomes in congenital heart disease. Dr. Anderson has spent the last several years working with infants with congenital heart disease with nutritional failure to better understand the etiology of their growth problems and to design interventions to improve their growth.

Following cardiology fellowship, Dr. Anderson helped establish the Syncope Clinic in the Heart Institute at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, and he continues to direct the work in this clinic.
