Midori Seppa

Clinical Instructor, Pediatrics - Neonatal and Developmental Medicine
Bio:   I grew up in a wonderful community in California, surrounded by old chicken farms and horses, living in the house that my great-grandfather built. I attended Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Oregon, a small liberal arts school where I became interested in the sciences and medicine. I then moved halfway across the country to St. Louis, Missouri, for a joint MD/PhD program with graduate training focused on the development and patterning of the fruit fly eye. Missing my family and California, I made my way back after graduation from medical school and completed my residency training at Stanford Children's Health/Lucile Packard Children's Hospital. I have been working as a hospitalist and pediatrician at Stanford Children's Health since graduating from residency.

I believe that pediatricians not only have the responsibility and privilege to care for children but also the opportunity to partner with parents in helping their children grow and develop over time. Parenthood can be incredibly rewarding and very challenging and every person's experience of being a parent is unique. I love working closely with families to promote their child's health, growth and development, whether that is while their baby is in the hospital after birth or as a pediatrician in the High Risk Infant Follow-Up Clinic at Stanford Children's Health. I also enjoy teaching and working with residents and medical students in both settings.
