Biography

Dr. Solan is a pediatric hospitalist who cares for patients admitted to the hospital with general pediatric conditions.

Dr. Solan also serves as the Associate Division Chief of Pediatric Hospital Medicine.

Professional Background

Dr. Solan is a graduate of the University of Notre Dame (BS) and State University of New York at Buffalo School of Medical and Biomedical Sciences (MD). She completed pediatric residency training, chief residency and a three year Pediatric Hospital Medicine fellowship at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center. She was also a National Research Service Award fellow at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center. She also received her Masters in Medical Education through the University of Cincinnati in 2014.

Upon completion of her husband's fellowship, she joined faculty at the University of Rochester as a clinical hospitalist and researcher in the Division of Pediatric Hospital Medicine.

Research

Dr. Solan has a broad interest in improving the way providers communicate with each other and with families. Dr. Solan has a special interest in patient transitions home after hospital discharge and the communication and handoff processes that surround that event. Dr. Solan served as a site co-investigator for the IIPE-PRIS Accelerating Safe Signouts (I-PASS) study in Cincinnati. She was also a study team member for a Patient Centered Outcomes Research Institute grant that evaluated the experiences of families transitioning home after a child's hospitalization, modified a nurse-led transitional home visit program, and evaluated the efficacy of the new transitional home visit program on patient-centered outcomes. Dr. Solan is currently funded by a University of Rochester CTSI KL2 Career Development Grant and is investigating how to predict which pediatric patients are at greatest risk for hospital readmission or Emergency Department revisit.
