Dr. Avram Traum, MD
Dr. Traum is originally from New York where he grew up and attended medical school at New York Medical College. After graduation in 1997, he went on active duty in the US Air Force and began his residency in Pediatrics at Travis AFB in northern California. He spent an additional year there as Chief Resident. He then moved east to Andrew AFB outside of Washington, DC where he spent two years as a General Pediatrician. In 2003, he moved to Boston for a fellowship in pediatric nephrology at Boston Children's Hospital. He was a Pediatric Nephrologist at Massachusetts General Hospital from 2006-2015, then returned to Boston Children's in late 2015. Aside from his clinical interests in the care of children with kidney disease and their families, Dr. Traum has also been involved in the education of medical students and residents. Along with colleagues, he developed and led a novel reflection curriculum for Pediatric Interns, focusing on promoting empathy, preventing burnout, and developing resilience during this early part of their professional identity formation and has promoted more interactive teaching for faculty and residents. His clinical interests span the full spectrum of kidney diseases, transplantation and hypertension.
