Dr. Lisa DelSignore is an associate professor in pediatric critical care medicine at Yale University with a focus on medical education. Lisa completed her medical education at Georgetown University School of Medicine in 2008 and went on to complete her residency and chief residency in pediatrics at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (2011, 2012) and pediatric critical care fellowship at Boston Children’s Hospital (2015).

Her early research in medical education focused on evaluating the use of test-enhanced learning strategies and spaced learning for knowledge and retention in the online setting. She also has experience in applying principles of multimedia learning theory to reduce cognitive load and enhance learning using online, video-based content and curricula. Lisa has developed expertise in applying cognitive learning theories, active learning strategies, and integrating technology and gamification within traditional didactic teaching sessions and has facilitated workshops nationally on these topics.

Lisa is the fellowship program director for pediatric critical care medicine at Yale and is actively engaged in regional and national leadership positions through the Association of Pediatric Program Directors Organization. Prior to her time at Yale, she was involved in educational leadership as an associate residency program director, pediatric clerkship site director, and advanced pediatric clerkship/elective course director for fourth year medical students at Tufts University. Her current interests in medical education focus on mentorship and coaching, promoting learner autonomy, use of different assessment methods, as well as developing new curricula that incorporate the use of technology and active learning strategies.
