Current Research and Scholarly Interests
Jody Lin, MD received her BS in Chemical Biology with a minor in Public Policy at UC Berkeley followed by her MD at UC Irvine. She then completed her general pediatrics residency at Baylor College of Medicine before coming to Stanford to complete concurrent fellowships in Pediatric Hospital Medicine at the Department of Pediatrics and Health Systems Design at the Clinical Excellence Research Center (CERC).
Dr. Lin is currently a Spectrum KL2 Career Development Award scholar through which she will complete a Masters in Health Services Research and pursue further research in shared decision making and health systems design for children with medical complexity. Current projects include exploring narratives of parents of children with medical complexity, developing technological aids for chronic illness management, and piloting new models of care in early childhood.
Dr. Lin has volunteered for and led multiple initiatives providing medical services to resource-limited populations, most notably partnering with county public health programs and nonprofits to provide wraparound services to combat generational homelessness. Subsequently she became interested in program evaluation using health services research methodologies and has focused on improving care for vulnerable populations in pediatrics, such as children with medical complexity. She was also part of a multidisciplinary team that created new models of care to improve health care value in early childhood at CERC.
