Terry Kind, MD, MPH

Terry Kind, MD, MPH, is a Professor of Pediatrics and the Associate Dean for Clinical Education at Children’s National and George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Sciences. She received her undergraduate degree from Cornell before entering medical school at The Mount Sinai School of Medicine. She completed her pediatric residency at Children’s Hospital of NY at Columbia where she also earned her MPH in population and family health. She continues to practice primary care pediatrics in an underserved community in Washington, DC where she has long advocated for reducing health disparities. In addition, she completed GW’s Master Teacher Program and the AAMC’s Leadership Education and Advocacy Development (LEAD) program, and locally she is an inaugural member of the Children’s Academy of Pediatric Educators (CAPE) and earned GW’s Distinguished Teacher Award. She has served in many other educational roles including clerkship director, curriculum committee chair, and professional development mentor.

Her professional interests include all aspects of medical student education, and she examined professionalism in the use of social media for medical education at a time when this was novel territory. In addition to her record of scholarly productivity in these areas, she is dedicated to helping others succeed in their academic pursuits. She served on COMSEP’s Executive Committee focusing on strategic planning, research and scholarship, and mentoring. She largely employs qualitative research methods, and served accordingly as APA’s qualitative research SIG co-chair. She also enjoys writing and is drawn to other people’s stories, recently becoming the Editor for the “In the Moment” narrative section of Academic Pediatrics. She is also an Associate Editor of “The 5‐Minute Pediatric Consult” where she introduced an education section and mentored others in chapter writing. Overall, Dr Kind aims to grow and develop alongside her patients, learners, peers, and mentees.

Personally, she enjoys time with her family, jogging outdoors, and making progress on crossword puzzles.
