Dr. Collins then joined the faculty at the University of Florida in October of 2006. In the Fall of 2009 Dr. Collins was appointed as the Chief of the new division of pediatric hospital medicine. Her primary clinical interests are in the care of the acutely ill child, patient and family centered care, and patient safety. Additionally, she has a research interest in Pompe disease and medical education.
