    Collapse overview
    Dr. Allison H. Bartlett, MD, MS, FAAP, is a pediatric infectious diseases specialist at the University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children’s Hospital. She grew up in Madison, Wisconsin and attended Princeton University with a major in molecular biology and a minor in Latin American Studies, graduating with Highest Honors in 1998. She graduated from Washington University School of Medicine in 2002 and completed her training in pediatrics and pediatric infectious diseases at Texas Children’s Hospital/Baylor College of Medicine in 2005 and 2008, respectively. After three years on the faculty at Texas Children’s, she was recruited in 2011 to the University of Chicago Medical Center to join the Section of Pediatric Infectious Diseases as well as the Infection Control and Prevention and Antimicrobial Stewardship Programs. She was promoted to Associate Professor in 2018.

    First and foremost, Dr. Bartlett is an astute and caring clinician who strives to provide patient- and family-centered, evidence-based, high-value care to all her patients. She is a role model for trainees and colleagues of the value of interprofessional collaboration and communication.

    In addition to her clinical and teaching responsibilities, she has several administrative roles. As the Associate Medical Director of Infection Control, she is the primary content expert for pediatric issues, and also participates in medical center-wide initiatives regardless of patient population. She created, developed and grew the pediatric Antimicrobial Stewardship program. In 2018, she handed over leadership of the pediatric Antimicrobial Stewardship Program to Dr. Madan Kumar, and serves as his mentor.

    She has built on the expertise developed working with the Infection Control and Antimicrobial Stewardship programs and expanded the scope of her responsibilities to include departmental and institutional positions in quality improvement and patient safety. She was appointed Quality Chief for the Department of Pediatrics in 2014, and works with faculty, staff, and trainees to improve the quality, safety and efficiency of care that we provide to our patients. In 2017, she was named Executive Medical Director for High Reliability Care, and leads the institutional ‘High Reliability’ program to develop a system-wide approach to eliminate clinically unwarranted variation and provide perfect care for every patient at the highest value.

    Dr. Bartlett lives in Hyde Park with her husband and their three sons. She and her family enjoy escaping the city and heading to the North Woods of Wisconsin in the summer for outdoor recreation: hiking, canoeing, swimming, fishing, sailing, and more.
