Heather Olson | Professional History
After medical school training at Mayo Medical School, I did all of my post-graduate training in Boston then came on faculty at Boston Children’s Hospital. My clinical focus in on Epilepsy and Neurogenetics/Epilepsy Genetics. I see patients through a number of programs within Neurology including the fetal-neonatal neurology program with a focus towards neurogenetic disorders and epilepsy. Additionally I see patients along with colleagues Dr. Benson and Dr. Gorman in our joint Inflammatory Epilepsy Program. I am a clinician and clinical researcher. My research is in the field of Epilepsy Genetics, particularly genetics of early onset epileptic encephalopathies and infantile spasms. Additionally, I am working towards a master of science degree in Epidemiology through the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, with a focus on Genetic Epidemiology.
