Dr. Bannett completed his medical studies at Hebrew University in Israel, and completed pediatrics residency at Tel Aviv University, Asaf Harofeh Medical Center, in 2013. After practicing as a community-based primary care provider and developmental pediatrician in Israel, he came to Stanford in 2016 to complete a clinical fellowship in Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics (DBP). In fellowship, he engaged in community-based health services research, under the mentorship of Dr. Lynne Huffman and Dr. Heidi Feldman. After fellowship, Dr. Bannett was selected to receive funding through the Department of Pediatrics “Bridge to K” program, and is currently appointed as an instructor in the division of DBP.

Research & Scholarship

Current Research and Scholarly Interests

Yair Bannett, MD, is interested in improving health care delivery in community-based primary care for children with developmental and behavioral (DB) conditions. As an instructor in the Division of Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics (DBP), he seeks to develop reliable quality measures for assessing management of children with DB conditions in primary care. Current projects include observational studies in the primary care setting, using multi-level analysis of electronic health record (EHR) data to assess management of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and early identification of autism spectrum disorder and other developmental disabilities. Dr. Bannett is interested in utilizing recent advances in natural language processing technology to better assess quality of care provided by PCPs, with the ultimate goal of implementing clinician- and systems-level interventions aimed at improving health care delivery for children with DB conditions.
