Dr. David Harrild's Credentials
Accepting New Patients
Yes, this doctor is accepting new patients
In my work at Boston Children’s Hospital, I feel that I have come full circle. I was born and grew up in Massachusetts, not far from Boston. After moving to New Hampshire to attend Dartmouth College, I embraced the field of Engineering, but also became intrigued by the Biological Sciences. It was then natural for me to enroll in a PhD program in Biomedical Engineering at my next destination, Duke University. My fascination with Biology continued, leading me towards the MD program at Duke. After finishing my MD/PhD there, I moved on to San Francisco for my pediatric residency at the University of California. After 3 wonderful years, I applied to the Fellowship program in Pediatric Cardiology at the best program in the country, Boston Children’s Hospital. Thrilled to have been given a spot, I spent 3 years here for my traditional fellowship then another year pursuing advanced training in Pediatric and Fetal Imaging. Offered the opportunity to stay on as faculty, I jumped at the chance. Since that time, I have continued to develop a strong clinical interest in fetal and pediatric cardiology, with a particular focus in imaging. My research interests surround the development of novel ultrasound-based methods to characterize cardiac structure and function within pediatric cardiology.
