Dr. Sharon was born and raised in Haifa, Israel, spending as much time as possible at the Mediterranean Sea. He obtained his medical degree at Semmelwies University in Budapest, Hungary. After graduating from the Pediatric residency program at Nationwide Children’s Hospital/The Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio, Dr. Sharon moved to Minneapolis to complete a Pediatric Infectious Disease fellowship at the University of Minnesota. Dr. Sharon then joined the University of Minnesota faculty. He is board certified in both General Pediatrics and Pediatric Infectious Diseases. His clinical duties include roles in both infectious Disease and Pediatric Hospital Medicine. As an infectious disease specialist, he sees patients admitted to the hospital with infectious concerns and sees children and adolescents at his Infectious Disease outpatient clinics. As a Pediatric Hospitalist, Dr. Sharon sees children and adolescents who require hospital admission for general Pediatric issues, and he works at both the University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital and Fairview Ridges Hospital. He is also the director for the University of Minnesota Pediatric Hospital Medicine fellowship program.
His clinical interests include invasive bacterial infections in otherwise healthy children, as well as congenital CMV infection. He’s also interested in continuing medical education, and is excited to lead the Hospitalist division’s fellowship training program. When not in the hospital you may find him traveling with his family (either biking around town or globetrotting with his wife and three young children), or jumping out of airplanes just for fun.
