Eric B. McClellan, M.D., FAAP

  • Assistant Professor of Pediatrics, Division of Critical Care, School of Medicine
  • CVICU Rotation Director


Dr. Eric McClellan specializes in caring for kids with heart problems. He has advanced training in cardiac intensive care and specializes in caring for children before and after heart surgery. Dr. McClellan was drawn to this area of medicine because of a desire to help children in their most serious times of need and a desire to contribute to the care of children who are born with heart abnormalities. Dr. McClellan is incredibly grateful for the opportunity to share in this work alongside an excellent team and finds great satisfaction in the ability to make a difference in the lives of his patients.

When Dr. McClellan is not at the hospital, you will probably find him out exploring the wilderness with his wife and their two children, or finding new ways to enjoy the beauty around us. He also enjoys practicing calligraphy and writing in cursive.
