Dr. Kronman’s primary research interest is antimicrobial stewardship, using the tools of pharmacoepidemiology to understand current patterns of antimicrobial use, identify the unintended consequences of antimicrobial overuse, and ultimately find ways to improve the overall quality of antimicrobial prescribing for various conditions. His clinical time is split between inpatient Infectious Diseases consultations and the outpatient Infectious Diseases Clinic. He works closely with Dr. Frenkel, the Research Director and Training Grant Principle Investigator, to coordinate all aspects of research training for our fellows. Within the Division, he collaborates with Drs. Zerr and Weissman on projects related to resistant Enterobacteriaceae infections in children. Outside the Division, he collaborates with researchers at the University of Washington (Drs. Rita Mangione-Smith and Tamara Simon) and at other institutions on projects related to antimicrobial stewardship in both inpatient and outpatient settings.
