Biosketch

Dr. Levine is an Assistant Professor of Medicine in the division of Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. She is the Program Director of the Critical Care Medicine Fellowship. Her clinical efforts are focused on care of patients in the medical intensive care unit (MICU) including patients with COVID-19. In addition, she is completing her Masters in Science with a focus on epidemiology. She is currently involved in ICU based clinical trials and has served as a co-investigator on COVID-19 drug trials. 

Dr. Levine also runs a post-ICU clinic. Here she cares for patients who required prolonged hospitalizations in the ICU, ECMO, or were hospitalized for COVID-19. Her primary interest is in better understanding the various phenotypes of the post-ICU syndrome and in assiting her patients in their path towards complete recovery.

Dr. Levine's current research interests include medical education, designing and running ICU based clinical trials, ICU and critical illness outcomes, post-ECMO outcomes, pulmonary embolism, and the post-ICU syndrome.
