Bio

Dr. Schechter is professor and chief of the Division of Pulmonary Medicine in the Department of Pediatrics and co-director of the VCU cystic fibrosis center. As a pulmonologist, he has a special clinical interest in cystic fibrosis and other causes of childhood bronchiectasis. He also has extensive experience in bronchoscopy and in the care of children with asthma, airway obstruction, and respiratory complications of systemic diseases such as sickle cell disease and neuromuscular disorders.

His research has been primarily concerned with environmental and sociodemographic influences as well as the impact of treatment variations on outcomes in CF, and he has also worked with the CF Foundation on fostering methods to improve the quality of care and outcomes for children with cystic fibrosis. He is also working with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in creating and using a Spina Bifida disease registry.

He has previously been on the faculty of Wake Forest University, Brown University, and Emory University. He has served on numerous committees of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, American Thoracic Society, and American Academy of Pediatrics, and is immediate past chair of the AAP Section of Pediatric Pulmonology.
