Pediatric Hospitalist, Seattle Children’s Hospital

Dates of Visit: April 18 – 20, 2017

Purpose of Visit

During his visit to CHES, Dr. Beck will be meeting with educators and researchers within the CHES community. He would like to discuss plans for his next research project on “High Value Care” (HVC) as well as explore areas of joint interest and possible collaboration.


Dr. Jimmy Beck graduated from medical school at the University of Washington and recently completed a fellowship in Pediatric Hospital Medicine at Children’s National Medical Center in Washington DC. During his time in Washington DC, he obtained a Masters in Medical Education at the George Washington University.

Dr. Beck has a strong interest in promoting High Value Care and cost conscious behaviors. He has helped develop two separate HVC curriculums in an effort to train learners (students, residents, fellow) and physicians to be good stewards of limited healthcare resources. For his next project, he would like to explore families’ and teen-age patients’ perspectives on “Value” during bedside rounds, with the goal of informing faculty development programs. During his time off, he enjoys cooking, remodeling his house, wine tasting, and spending time with his two nephews.
