Clinical, Research and/or Teaching Responsibilities

Dr. Kenneth Feldman completed his undergraduate and medical school training at the University of Wisconsin, Madison in 1970. Pediatric internship and residency at the Children's Orthopedic Hospital and University of Washington, Seattle were temporarily interrupted by alternative service as a conscientious objector. After training, he returned to the central area Seattle clinic, Odessa Brown Children's Clinic, where he did his CO. Dr. Feldman has gradually taken on more abuse consultation, as well as emergency department attending (till July, 2008) and ward (for a while PICU) attending at the Children's hospital, but he still does 4/10 time primary care. Early research in tap water scalds led to an interest in child physical abuse and the AAP's Practitioner Research Award. He has been consulting, conducting research, writing and lecturing on child physical abuse since 1983. He directed Seattle Children's child abuse program from 1983-2010. He is the recipient of the Helfer Society's Ray Helfer award for 2008.

Dr. Feldman is currently a Clinical Professor of Pediatrics at the UW. He's a member of IPSCAN, APSAC, APA, WSPR, a past board member of the Helfer Society and a current member of the COCAN Executive Committee. He was boarded in Child Abuse Pediatrics in 2010.

His research focus has been on defining characteristics of inflicted and innocent injuries and injury prevention.
