“Not only are we excited to have a pediatric rheumatologist to see our arthritis and autoimmune patients, but we are so happy to have Dr. Rosen become part of our WVU Medicine Children’s family. He runs a truly patient-centered practice, and his TEDx talk on empathy in healthcare shows that his values are in the proper place. We can all learn from his guidance,” Charles Mullett, M.D., Ph.D., chair of the WVU Department of Pediatrics, said. “We are so pleased to have him in our organization, and we know our patients will love him, too.”

Dr. Rosen also currently serves as medical officer for the Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative (TCPI) at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Previously, he served as the clinical director of service and operational excellence at the Nemours Children’s Health System.

Rosen received his medical degree from the State University of New York at Buffalo. He then received a master’s in public health from Harvard University and a master’s in medical management from Carnegie Mellon University. He completed an internship and residency in pediatrics at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York followed by a fellowship in pediatric rheumatology at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.

Rosen, a professor of pediatrics, is board certified in pediatric rheumatology.

“I am thrilled to join the WVU community as the state’s first pediatric rheumatologist,” Rosen said. “I am thankful for the opportunity to help make an impact for the children of West Virginia.”
