Katja Gist, DO, MSc
Aurora, CO USA

I am a dual trained pediatric cardiologist and intensivist. I perform all my clinical care in the cardiac intensive care unit, which is both a surgical and medical intensive care unit for children and adults with congenital and acquired heart disease. I provide expertise in critical care nephrology to my colleagues in the cicu. I perform clinical research in multiple areas of critical care nephrology, predominantly focusing on the systemic complications. At Children's Hospital Colorado, I founded the Pediatric Kidney Injury and Disease Stewardship (PKIDS) program with my nephrology colleague (Dr Soranno). Through PKIDS, we have several hospital wide quality improvement initiatives to reduced nephrotoxic acute kidney injury and enhance AKI awareness. PKIDS also provides a forum for education as well as mentorship of trainees.
