Kathleen Pham is the first-year fellow at the University of Virginia Health System. She is originally from Oakton, Virginia, and pursued her undergraduate degree in public health and her master's in healthcare administration from George Washington University.
Kathleen completed her graduate administrative internship at the Cleveland Clinic in the Pediatric Institute. During her internship at Cleveland Clinic Children’s, Kathleen analyzed process improvement data and mapped current state workflows across pediatric outpatient departments. She also developed a scheduling template to forecast exam room utilization and staff ratios for a new outpatient building.
Given her interest in quality and process improvement, Kathleen sought out an internship during graduate school at the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), where she helped develop a streamlined tracking system for conflicts of interest.
Kathleen was eager to start a fellowship at UVA because of the organization’s strong culture of learning and commitment to patient safety.
Outside of work and school, Kathleen enjoys traveling, reading, and exploring new restaurants.
