Background

Dr. Bauer is a native of Buffalo, NY. He completed his undergraduate at Canisius College and his medical degree at the State University of New York at Buffalo School of Medicine. He completed his pediatric training at Madigan Army Medical Center, Fort Lewis, Tacoma, WA, and his pediatric endocrine training at the National Capital Consortium, Uniformed Services University, Bethesda, MD. In 2013, Dr. Bauer retired from the United States Army after 29 years of service, to include two combat tours in Iraq.

Dr. Bauer's clinical and research area of interests are focused on the study of pediatric thyroid disease, including hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, thyroid nodular disease, thyroid cancer, and familial thyroid tumor syndromes. Within this field, Dr. Bauer has published more than 70 manuscripts, chapters and reviews and is a regularly invited lecturer and visiting professor at national and international meetings and academic institutes.

Dr. Bauer maintains active membership in the Endocrine Society, the Pediatric Endocrine Society, and the American Thyroid Association (ATA). In the ATA, Dr. Bauer served on the thyroid hormone replacement committee and as co-chair of the guidelines on the evaluation and management of pediatric thyroid nodules and differentiated thyroid cancer. Dr. Bauer is a member on the ATA Board of Directors and, most recently, was invited to serve on the World Health Organization, IARC Section of Environment and Radiation, international expert group charged to create guidelines on thyroid screening after nuclear disasters.

Dr. Bauer is an Associate Professor of Pediatrics at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. He serves as the Director of the Thyroid Center at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, a multidisciplinary center organized to provide coordinated and comprehensive care for children and adolescents with thyroid disorders.
