Dr. Emily Morell is a pediatric cardiologist and specialist in critical care for infants and children who were born with or develop heart disease. Her expertise includes surgical management before and immediately after procedures. She also treats children with cardiac conditions that require ongoing care.
Morell's research focuses on quality of life, prognostication (predicting medical outcomes) and parent-doctor communication in the treatment of children with advanced heart disease. She is also interested in outcomes for children with pulmonary hypertension and for those who require cardiac intensive care.
Morell earned her medical degree from Harvard Medical School. She completed a residency in pediatrics and a fellowship in pediatric critical care at UCSF. She completed a second fellowship in pediatric cardiology at Children's Hospital Los Angeles.
When she's not taking care of patients, Morell enjoys spending time in nature, with special interests in seeing animals in the wild and viewing astronomical events.
