Profile Headshot


Tina A. Leone, MD, is an Associate Professor of Pediatrics at Columbia University Medical Center and is the Training Program Director of the Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Fellowship.

After completing her medical degree and pediatrics training at the University of Medicine and Dentistry - New Jersey Medical School, Dr. Leone pursued neonatology training at the University of California, San Diego, where she developed an interest in neonatal resuscitation research and neonatology education. She also received additional training in neonatal functional echocardiography and uses ultrasound in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) to enhance clinical management.

Dr. Leone’s clinical interests are optimizing the stabilization of newborn infants at the time of birth, assessing the newborn physiology during the transition from fetal to newborn life, and improving outcomes for preterm infants and for infants with chronic diseases. Her research interests focus mostly on assessment of neonatal resuscitation interventions. She is also interested in developing new technologies and educational tools for teaching neonatal resuscitation skills and is involved in several multi-center clinical trials to assess novel approaches to therapies in preterm infants.

As Training Program Director, Dr. Leone guides pediatricians to develop into neonatologists who provide compassionate care to patients and contribute to advancing the field of neonatology throughout their careers. She enjoys mentoring trainees and is dedicated to helping families understand their babies’ conditions and treatments in the NICU and after discharge from the hospital.
