Associate Professor of Pediatrics
Email address: sameer.kamath@duke.edu

I love children and everything about them. I believe in caring for each of my patients as I would my own children. I believe in investing in systems of care and ensuring that the care we provide is safe, efficient and evidence-based.

I am interested in outcomes research, research related to health care resource utilization and research related to quality/performance improvement in healthcare.
