Dr. Julia Rosebush is a pediatric infectious diseases specialist at the University of Chicago, Comer Children's Hospital. A native Midwesterner, she grew up in Michigan, pursuing her undergraduate studies in Psychology at the Michigan State University Honors College and then attending medical school at the Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine where she graduated in 2006. Dr. Rosebush completed her pediatrics residency training at Nationwide Children's Hospital/The Ohio State University in 2009, before taking a position in the Baylor International Pediatric AIDS Initiative (BIPAI) in Gaborone Botswana, where she played an integral role in the scale-up of antiretroviral therapy for HIV-positive youth throughout the country. It was there that she discovered her passion for HIV medicine and returned to the United States to pursue an infectious diseases fellowship at Emory University in Atlanta, GA. She joined the University of Chicago faculty in the Section of Pediatric Infectious Diseases in 2014.
Dr. Rosebush currently serves as the Medical Director of Care2Prevent (C2P), the University’s Pediatric and Adolescent HIV Program, the largest provider of pediatric HIV care in South Chicago. Under her leadership, the program has steadily expanded to provide comprehensive biomedical care, supportive services, and prevention efforts to South Chicago’s most vulnerable youth. She and her team are steadily working to increase the routine, opt-out HIV screening of adolescents in emergency room settings, network recruitment for HIV/STI testing in high prevalence neighborhoods, and the uptake of HIV pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) for HIV-1 prevention. Dr. Rosebush’s primary interests focus on HIV-1 specifically as it relates to the management of multidrug resistant infections, STI co-infection, and the biopsychosocial aspects of prevention. She serves as site PI for a number of protocols within the PHACS and IMPAACT networks of the NIH.
Outside of the HIV realm, Dr. Rosebush is highly involved with medical education both clinically and administratively as Program Director for the Pediatric Infectious Diseases training program with a particular interest in leadership development amongst trainees. A MERITS scholar from 2018-2019, she is currently working on the design and implementation of a leadership curriculum targeted toward pediatric subspecialty fellows to better equip them in their future careers.
Dr. Rosebush and her husband live in the Old Town neighborhood of Chicago with their young daughter and are passionate international travelers and photographers with the goal of eating their way across the entire globe.
