About Jennifer N. Fishe

Jennifer N. Fishe, MD, is an assistant professor of emergency medicine and associate medical director for the UF Health Jacksonville Pediatric Emergency Department. Her research interests are pediatric prehospital care and quality improvement. She was the principal investigator on a retrospective study of pediatric prehospital and inter-facility transport patterns in Maryland, funded by The Falck Foundation. She is currently a co-investigator on a HRSA Targeted Issues Grant to develop a novel pediatric direct transport protocol (H34MC30232). She received her Lean Six Sigma Green Belt in healthcare quality improvement in 2017, and previously was the lead physician on a quality improvement project reducing pediatric ED patient consult times. Dr. Fishe received her undergraduate degree in Biology from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and her medical degree from the University of Miami. She completed her residency in general pediatrics at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, and her pediatric emergency medicine fellowship at the Johns Hopkins University.
