Jami Levine | Professional History

Dr. Levine finished college with a BS in Psychobiology.  She then went to graduate school, where she obtained a Masters Degree in Human Genetics.  After working for 3 years as a pediatric genetic counselor at Johns Hopkins Hospital, she returned to school for further training.  She obtained her MD at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in 1988.  Dr. Levine moved to Boston for residency at Tufts-Floating Hospital for Children, where she trained for 3 years.  After residency, she came to Boston Children’s Hospital for a fellowship in Pediatric Cardiology, including a year as Chief Fellow.  After finishing fellowship, she returned to Tufts as a staff pediatric cardiologist.  Two years later, she was recruited back to Boston Children’s Hospital as a staff cardiologist in the non-invasive cardiology division.  Dr. Levine’s time is divided between out-patient care and cardiac imaging.  Her clinical expertise as well as her research interest is in pediatric and fetal echocardiography.   She is most interested in how imaging can predict, and therefore impact, clinical outcomes in infants and children with congenital heart disease.

When I was a practicing genetic counselor, I realized how much more I could do for my patients if I had the training of a medical doctor. Now that I have that training, I realize how much more I can offer my patients because of my background as a counselor. There is no question that excellent medical care takes a combination of both medical skills and listening/communication skills. I believe that good medical care should be a shared collaborative effort with the patient and their family. I take the responsibility of being entrusted with a child’s health very seriously and I consider it a tremendous privilege to be invited by a family to be part of their care team.
