Lynne C. Huffman, MD, is a developmental-behavioral pediatrician (board certified, 2002) and Associate Professor of Pediatrics at Stanford School of Medicine. She received her MD from George Washington University (1981) and completed her pediatric residency training at the Children’s National Medical Center (Washington, D.C., 1984). Her subspecialty training in developmental-behavioral pediatrics was completed at UCSF (1986), with an NIH research post-doctoral fellowship in child development (1991).

In her faculty role at Stanford, she serves as Associate Program Director for the Developmental-Behavioral Pediatrics (DBP) Fellowship Program and directs the Pediatrics Residency DBP rotation. Her clinical responsibilities include High-risk Infant Follow-up and Young Child Program.  Current research activities concentrate on (1) medical education research – training subspecialists in shared decision-making; (2) the early identification and treatment of developmental and behavioral concerns, particularly in children with special health care needs; and, (3) community-based behavioral health/educational program evaluation and outcomes measurement.
