Ittai Bushlin, M.D., Ph.D.

  • Assistant Professor of Pediatrics, Division of Neurology, School of Medicine
  • Associate Program Director, Pediatric Neurology Residency Program
  • Pediatric Neurodevelopmental Disabilities Residency Program


Dr. Bushlin specializes in caring for kids with neurologic problems (brain, spinal cord, and nerves). He has advanced training in pediatric epilepsy including managing seizures, reading EEGs (a type of brain wave test), and preparing for epilepsy surgery. Sometimes seizures are associated with genetic changes that are either inherited from a parent or new in a child; Dr. Bushlin specializes in helping families understand how their child’s genetic results may impact their seizures and treatment. He enjoys working with kids and families in the inpatient and outpatient settings and is always impressed at the toughness and resilience of kids. 

In his spare time, Dr. Bushlin enjoys spending time with his wife and son, hiking, and trying to find the best bagel in Portland.
