Dr. Cabana Named New Chair of Pediatrics

Michael deCastro Cabana, M.D., M.P.H., has been named a professor and the Michael I. Cohen, M.D., University Chair of Pediatrics at Einstein and physician-in-chief at Children’s Hospital at Montefiore.

Dr. Cabana was most recently a professor of pediatrics and of epidemiology and biostatistics at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), where he also served as the chief of the division of general pediatrics. He assumed his new role at Montefiore and Einstein in September.

His research focuses on understanding and improving the diagnosis, prevention, and management of common childhood conditions such as pediatric asthma. He has conducted clinical trials on the effect of probiotics and prebiotics on asthma, infant colic, and growth.

Dr. Cabana received his bachelor of arts degree magna cum laude in government at Cornell University and his M.D. and M.A. at the combined-degree program at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and the Wharton School. He completed his residency at Johns Hopkins, where he received his master’s degree in public health. Dr. Cabana  completed his fellowship as a Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholar in 1999 before moving to the University of Michigan and, later, UCSF.

He is a member of the editorial board of The Journal of Pediatrics and edited the popular pediatric textbook The 5-Minute Pediatric Consult. He is currently serving a four-year term on the United States Preventive Services Task Force.
