Associate Professor of Pediatrics
Medical University of South Carolina College of Medicine
2009-2012 Cohort
Project Title:  “Improving Preventive Services Delivery to Children with Sickle Cell Disease”

About the Project:

This two-part project involved 1) an analysis of Maryland Medicaid claims data to determine whether and how preventive care is delivered to children with sickle cell disease and 2) an intervention aimed at improving transcranial Doppler screening rates (to prevent stroke) in the same population. 


David G. Bundy, M.D., M.P.H. is an Associate Professor at the Medical University of South Carolina College of Medicine. He was previously Assistant Professor in the Johns Hopkins University Department of Pediatrics.  He received his undergraduate degree in Biomedical Engineering from Duke University, his M.D. degree from the University of Michigan Medical School, and an M.P.H. in Maternal & Child Health from the School of Public Health at the University of California, Berkeley.  Dr. Bundy was a pediatrics resident at the University of Washington in Seattle and a Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholar at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Dr. Bundy’s research focuses on improving the safety and quality of ambulatory care for children, in particular Medicaid-insured children and those with chronic conditions.  Combining health services research and quality improvement methods, his research aims to improve the translation of efficacious therapies from research to ‘real-world’ settings.  Dr. Bundy is active clinically as a general pediatrician and attends in both inpatient and outpatient settings at Johns Hopkins.  In addition, he serves as a teacher of medical students, residents, and fellows via clinical precepting, research advising, and didactic lecturing.

Dr. Bundy’s Physician Faculty Scholars Project was entitled, “Improving Preventive Services Delivery to Children with Sickle Cell Disease.” Dr. Bundy’s research reflects larger research efforts nationwide aimed at narrowing the gap between what is and what could be in the healthcare of children with chronic conditions.
