Dr. Rubin graduated with a degree in biology from The University of Virginia and received her medical doctor degree from The Chicago Medical School. She completed her pediatrics residency at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA) then traveled to New York to work as a pediatric critical care hospitalist at Morgan Stanley Children’s/Columbia Presbyterian Hospital. Dr. Rubin later returned to CHLA to complete her Pediatric Critical Care fellowship and continued on as a research fellow while completing a master of science degree in clinical investigation, studying impact of the Pediatric Early Warning System Score on PICU admissions and clinical outcomes. Building upon this research, Dr. Rubin focused on “big data” using large-scale complex information contained within a patient’s electronic health record to develop predictive models designed to prevent children from becoming critically ill. She received an NIH sponsored KL2 grant to develop a predictive model for early recognition and prevention of Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome, a respiratory disorder causing significant morbidity and mortality in children. Dr. Rubin recently joined the faculty at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, renowned for excellence in patient care and clinical research. She continues to care for children admitted to the PICU and pursue her research goals of preventing critical illness in children.
