    Collapse Overview
    Dr. Arup Roy-Burman is an Associate Clinical Professor of Pediatrics. He received his M.D., with Thesis, degree at UCSF and completed a residency in pediatrics at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford. He completed pediatric critical care training in the UCSF-Children’s Hospital Oakland Joint Fellowship Program. He also completed research fellowships at UCSF's Cardiovascular Research Institute and the Department of Anesthesia. He began his clinical career at UCSF, followed by nearly a decade at Children’s Hospital Oakland, and returned to UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital San Francisco in 2011.

    From 2011 to 2016, Dr. Roy-Burman was Medical Director of the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (ICU), as well as Director of Pediatric Transport, Access, and Outreach for UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital San Francisco. He continues to provide limited clinical service in both the Pediatric ICU and the Pediatric Cardiac ICU at both BCH SF and Oakland hospitals.

    Dr. Roy-Burman is interested in the promotion of both internal and external collaborations between specialties and institutions, standardization of patient care delivery, optimization of outcomes, and the development of regional best practices. He has also long been an advocate of facilitating access to care, for both patients and referring physicians, with a focus on customer relationship management and telehealth.

    In 2016, Dr. Roy-Burman founded Elemeno Health, a UCSF-backed company building upon an internal cloud-based prototype to empower frontline staff with institution-specific microlearning. This approach streamlines dissemination of rapidly changing best practices to a large, distributed, and/or asynchronous workforce, driving consistency of practice, and improved safety and outcomes.

    Previously, Dr. Roy-Burman led the re-establishment of the Northern California Pediatric Intensive Care Network and served as its Chair. Roy-Burman has a long history of involvement with international health. He is co-founder and former Director of the Roatan Volunteer Pediatric Clinic in Roatan, Honduras, where he has also established one of the largest pediatric resident international health electives available to US trainees. He is a member of the Board of Directors of the 501(c)3 Global Healing, where he has served as Chair. Roy-Burman has been recognized consistently in Best Doctors in America and Who’s Who in America.
