About Dr. Pouch

Dr. Pouch received her MD from Temple University School of Medicine in 2007. She completed her internship and residency in Internal Medicine at the University of Chicago, served as a Chief Resident at the John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County, and completed fellowship training in Infectious Diseases at the Columbia University Medical Center. While at Columbia, Dr. Pouch also obtained a Master of Science in Biostatistics at the Mailman School of Public Health. She joined the faculty at Emory University as an Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Division of Infectious Diseases in 2017.

Dr. Pouch’s clinical and research interests relate to infectious complications of solid organ and stem cell transplantation, with a primary research emphasis on multi-drug resistant Gram-negative infections in transplant recipients. She is an active member of the American Society of Transplantation, where she serves as Chair of the Infectious Disease Community of Practice’s Multidrug-Resistant Organisms Workgroup, as well as the International Society for Heart & Lung Transplantation.
