A native Chicagoan (Go Sox!), Miles Ellenby has always been an advocate for children. His education started with an eye on technology and how it can be applied to improve human health. He first earned his degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Illinois, prior to going to medical school at the University of Chicago. He then shook his midwestern roots to train in Pediatrics at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, and in Pediatric Critical Care at the joint UC San Francisco – Children’s Hospital of Oakland program.
He followed Scottie Pippen to Portland in 2000 and has been faculty at Doernbecher’s Children’s Hospital at Oregon Health & Science University ever since. His tech background has informed work in cardiovascular monitoring, complex systems analysis, and most notably telehealth, when in 2005 he started a telemedicine program to support local community hospitals.
In his free time, Miles enjoys music, the outdoors, basketball and spending time with his family (not necessarily in that order).
