Sean Elliott, MD, FAAP

Dr. Elliott earned his MD from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in 1993, followed by a Pediatric Residency at Children’s Memorial Hospital, Northwestern University School of Medicine, and a fellowship in Pediatric Infectious Diseases at St. Louis Children’s Hospital, Washington University School of Medicine. He was recruited to the University of Arizona College of Medicine in 1999 and served in multiple roles there: Professor of Pediatrics, Associate Chair for the Department of Pediatrics, Pediatrics Residency Program Director, Director of Infection Prevention for Banner University Medicine – Tucson, and interim Associate Dean of Curricular Affairs for the University of Arizona College of Medicine. Dr. Elliott retired from the University of Arizona after a 20+ year career and now has returned to his first passions: providing pediatric subspecialty clinical care and teaching at the bedside. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has called him back to the role of content-expert and consultant to healthcare systems in Arizona, and he is happy to bring the current state of evidence to important discussions. He also is personally invested in the ongoing discussion about safety of in-person school, as his life-partner is a high-school teacher in one of the most under-resourced and high-risk high schools in Arizona.

Dr. Elliott has no disclosures.
