Dr. Eleanor Schuchardt is a board-certified pediatric cardiologist at Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego and an assistant clinical professor of pediatrics at UC San Diego School of Medicine.

Dr. Schuchardt earned her bachelor's and medical degrees at Michigan State University, where she graduated with honors with a dual major in human biology and physiology and a minor in bioethics.

She then completed her doctorate at the College of Human Medicine, where her interest in pediatric cardiology was sparked. Subsequently, she completed her residency and fellowship in pediatrics and pediatric cardiology at Children's Hospital Colorado and the University of Colorado. The capstone of her training was an advanced fellowship in non-invasive imaging and fetal cardiology while supported by the National Institute of Health T32 training grant.

Her research interests include fetal cardiac biomarkers, fetal cardiac magnetic resonance imaging and resiliency in congenital heart disease. She also enjoys teaching residents and fellows and using imaging to explain physiology.
