Jennifer Griffith, MD, PhD, specializes in pediatric epilepsy, neurocritical care, and general neurology. In the hospital setting, she is interested in caring for patients with complex or critical neurological diagnoses and helping families navigate management decisions. In the clinic, she sees patients with seizures (including medically intractable epilepsy), headaches, developmental delay, functional neurological disorders, and follow-up of patients with neurocritical care diagnoses.  Griffith is also committed to education of fellows, residents and medical students. Her main educational interests are in communication skills, particularly those involved in difficult conversations and shared decision making. She enjoys coaching medical students and residents to build their communication and clinical care skills using evidence-based techniques.
