About Nicole Nadeau, MD

Nicole is a specialized Pediatric Emergency Medicine Attending in the pediatric emergency department of MassGeneral for Children.  She grew up in Seekonk, MA and attended College of the Holy Cross where she earned a BA in Spanish with a pre-medical concentration.  She spent a year of college studying in Spain, where she learned to speak Spanish.  She attended Holy Cross on an Air Force ROTC scholarship and, after graduation, was active duty at Edwards Air Force Base in California where she helped to lead disaster preparedness for the base.  Nicole left the Air Force to pursue her dreams of medicine and returned home to attend the University of Massachusetts Medical School.  She then completed her residency in pediatrics at Yale New Haven Children's Hospital, where she also served as chief resident.  She went on to complete her fellowship in Pediatric Emergency Medicine at Boston Children's Hospital.  In fellowship Nicole became deeply interested in quality improvement and patient safety.  She now has joined MassGeneral for Children as full-time faculty, where she continues to focus on quality improvement, working collaboratively with both the Pediatrics and Emergency Medicine departments.  Her clinical interests include the care of critically ill children and diagnostic challenges in the emergency room.
