Dr. Ashkon Shaahinfar is a pediatric emergency medicine physician and the Director of Emergency ultrasound at UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland. He attended medical school at UCSF and pursued both his Master in Public Health and Pediatric residency training in Boston before returning to Oakland, where he completed his pediatric emergency medicine and point-of-care ultrasound fellowships, at Children’s Hospital Oakland and Highland Hospital, respectively. One of his primary draws to the field of pediatric emergency medicine is the inspiration and opportunity to stand back and look upstream from public health, advocacy and programmatic perspectives to address social determinants of children’s health and the systemic issues that lead children to the emergency department.
