Margaret L. Stuber, MD

Margaret L. Stuber, M.D. came to UCLA in 1980, after completing her medical training at the University of Michigan, to do her residency training in Psychiatry. After receiving further training in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, she joined the faculty in the Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences to pursue her interest in work with medically ill children and their families, and is now the Jane and Marc Nathanson Professor of Psychiatry. Her research has focused on traumatic stress responses of pediatric cancer survivors, pediatric organ transplant recipients, and their parents. This research has led to her involvement in the National Child Traumatic Stress Network, a group of over 50 sites across the United States dedicated to development of prevention, assessment, and treatment for psychologically traumatized children and adolescents.

Dr. Stuber is also deeply committed to medical education. She is the Director of Medical Student Education for the Department of Psychiatry, and is one of the two Co-Chairs of the Medical Education Committee for the David Geffen School of Medicine. In this role she has been actively involved in the creation and implementation of the new curriculum begun at UCLA in August 2003. She is now developing curriculum for use by medical schools across the United States.
