Matthew P Kronman, MD, MSCE: Assistant Professor of Pediatric Infectious Diseases. Dr. Kronman's primary research area of interest is antimicrobial stewardship, using the tools of pharmacoepidemiology to understand current patterns of antimicrobial use, identify the unintended consequences of antimicrobial overuse, and ultimately find ways to improve the overall quality of antimicrobial prescribing for various conditions.

His clinical time is split between inpatient Infectious Diseases consultations and the outpatient Infectious Diseases clinic. In addition, he is the Fellowship Program Director for the Pediatric Infectious Diseases fellowship. He also serves as a consultant to the Seattle Children's Hospital Clinical Effectiveness program, assisting with the development and implementation of clinical pathways of care for inpatients at Seattle Children's Hospital.
