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 completed her Masters in Science with a focus on epidemiology. She is currently involved in ICU based clinical trials focusing on patients with ARDS and has served as a co-investigator on COVID-19 drug trials.
