Terrence Cronin, MD, FAAP, is a native of Seattle, WA, where he obtained his undergraduate degree in chemistry, with a minor in theater, at the University of Washington.

Dr Cronin moved south for his medical training, receiving his MD at the University of California, San Francisco, remaining there for his pediatric residency. For fellowship, he moved across the country to Neptune, New Jersey, where he spent a year-long fellowship in sports medicine at the Jersey Shore University Medical Center, also covering athletic teams at Rutgers University.

Dr. Cronin joins Cincinnati Children's after working in pediatric sports medicine in his hometown of Seattle for 9 years. There he built a patient-centered practice, with a specialty focusing on the unique needs and demands of young dancers, ballet, including pointe, and other forms. He was active in the community, covering performances of pre-professional ballet and dance studios. There, much like game coverage, he remained backstage, attending to the medical needs of the dancers during their performances.

Dr. Cronin has also been involved covering rugby, semi-professional clubs, SFGG, as well as youth rugby in the Seattle and San Francisco areas. Dr Cronin has been fortunate to work with USA Rugby, covering their men's and women's developmental and national teams, as well as age grade from U-20 to U-16; traveling to Hong Kong and Zimbabwe for the Mens U-20 Junior World Trophy.
