Bio

Dr. Kirsten B. Dummer is a pediatric cardiologist at Rady Children's Hospital-San Diego and an associate clinical professor of pediatrics at UC San Diego School of Medicine.

Dr. Dummer attended Northwestern University, earned her medical degree from the University of Arizona College of Medicine and completed her pediatric residency at Denver Children's Hospital. Her fellowship training included pediatric cardiology and subsequent advanced training in non-invasive imaging and adult congenital heart disease at Boston Children's Hospital. After completing her training in 2006, she joined the Children's Heart Clinic at Children's Minnesota, where she became medical director of cardiology at Children's Minnesota and led the fetal cardiology program at the Midwest Fetal Care Center. In September 2018, she joined Rady Children's Specialists of San Diego.

Dr. Dummer's interests include prenatal detection and management of fetal heart disease, identifying risk factors and predictors of outcome, and early diagnosis of fetal heart dysfunction in twin to twin transfusion syndrome.
