Summary

Sarah Kiel attended medical school at Michigan State University College of Human Medicine. She completed her internal medicine residency at the University of Minnesota followed by a Chief Residency. She subsequently trained at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center for her pulmonary and critical care fellowship with an emphasis in lung transplant and cystic fibrosis. She is thrilled to return to the University of Minnesota's excellent center for CF and transplant care.

At UPMC, she created a database evaluating outcomes in CF patients undergoing lung transplant to assist in evaluating pre transplant factors potentially affecting post transplant outcomes. She also led several small group sessions in the University of Pittsburgh medical school during their pulmonary physiology course.
In her spare time, she usually has her nose stuck in a book and enjoys cooking with her husband and cat.
She is excited to be part of the division of Pulmonary and Critical Care at the University of Minnesota.
