Academic Bio

Dr. Winter's career as a clinician educator began in 1991 at the University of Minnesota School of Medicine, where she began as a clinical instructor in the Department of Pediatrics while working at Gillette Children’s Hospital from 1991 – 1995. Beginning in January of 1996, she entered her fellowship in Developmental Pediatrics at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. In January of 1998, she became a member of the Pediatrics Department at Emory University as an Assistant Professor in the Division of Developmental Pediatrics. While there, she was hired as a consultant to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention at the National Center for Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities participating in the research on autism and cerebral palsy.

In 1999, she moved to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and Medical Center to join the faculty of the Division of Developmental Pediatrics in the Department of Pediatrics as an Assistant Professor. In 2002 she moved to Ohio State University, where she was promoted to Associate Professor in the Department of Pediatrics in the Division of Developmental Pediatrics. She worked there directing the Cerebral Palsy Clinic and serving as a consultant in the Neonatal Follow-up Clinic and the Spina Bifida Clinic. In 2006, Dr. Winter moved to the University of Utah and continues as an Associate Professor in the Department of Pediatrics.

Dr.Winter’s research focus is the systems of care for children with disabilities. This is expressed through her role as the principle investigator over the past four years of the Utah Regional Leadership Education in Neurodevelopmental Disabilities (URLEND). This is a grant funded by the Maternal Child Health Bureau and has been held by the University of Utah for the past 10 years. Additionally, Dr. Winter has recently taken on the role as the medical director for the Neonatal Follow-up Program at the Bureau for Children with Special Health Care Needs. She and a colleague co-direct the Developmental and Behavioral Pediatric rotation for the University of Utah pediatric residency program. Dr. Winter is active in the American Academy of Cerebral Palsy and Developmental Medicine and currently sits on their Board.
