Dr. Rosenbluth has a wide range of responsibilities, including oversight of the curriculum on the inpatient rotations, development of quality improvement programs (both inpatient and outpatient), and mentorship of residents and chief residents. He has led workshops on a variety of topics, including improving patient handoffs, interprofessional team training, using electronic portfolios, and promotion of clinical reasoning skills.

      Dr. Rosenbluth completed his internship, residency and chief residency in pediatrics at UCSF. In addition, he has completed a Fellowship in Hospital Medicine through the UCSF Department of Medicine, the UCSF Teaching Scholars Program, and the Intermountain Healthcare Advanced Training Program.
