Allison Barz Leahy, MD, MSCE


Allison Barz Leahy, MD is a Fellow in the Pediatric Cancer Immunotherapy/Bone Marrow Transplant (BMT) Fellowship at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. She is a recent alumna of the Pediatric Hospital Epidemiology and Outcomes Research Training (PHEOT) program managed by the Center for Pediatric Clinical Effectiveness (CPCE) and the Master of Science in Clinical Epidemiology program at the University of Pennsylvania.

Dr. Leahy completed her internship and residency at CHOP after receiving her MD from SUNY Upstate College of Medicine, a MA in Biological Science from Hunter College, and a BA in Russian language with a minor in Chemistry from Bowdoin College. She previously did research on the integration of patient reported outcomes (PROs) into routine clinical care of adult cancer patients. She plans to extend this to the pediatric population, where there is currently no integrated system of pediatric PROs, or standardized inclusion of PROs in oncologic treatment trials.
