Dr. Ericka King was born in Oregon and raised in Washington, on both sides of the Cascade mountain range. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Zoology from the University of Washington in 1993, and then worked for several years before going on to medical school in Seattle. She graduated with honors from the University of Washington in 2005, and then departed for the Midwest for postgraduate training. She completed her residency in Otolaryngology at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, and her Pediatric Otolaryngology fellowship at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. While in Michigan, she spent a year researching the genetic basis of hearing loss while in the laboratory of Dr. Marci Lesperance. Dr. King is now thrilled to be returning home to the Pacific Northwest to join the faculty at OHSU.
As part of the Pediatric ENT Department at Doernbecher Children's Hospital, Dr. King is committed to Family Centered Care. This idea recognizes the importance of the family in the well-being and care of a child. Parents are given complete information to allow them to make an informed decision that is compatible with the beliefs of their family.
While Dr. King enjoys the full spectrum of Pediatric ENT, her particular clinical interests include children with genetic hearing loss, chronic ear disease and cochlear implantation, as well as airway and voice disorders. Dr. King is also keenly interested in medical student and resident education, and serves as the Associate Residency Program Director.
