Jessica Moreland received her Bachelor’s Degree in Zoology from Duke University. She obtained her M.D. from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, in 1992. Dr. Moreland remained at Vanderbilt University for her residency training in Pediatrics and her fellowship training in Pediatric Critical Care. After completion of all of her postgraduate training, she was recruited to join the faculty at the University of Iowa.
Dr. Moreland was appointed as an Assistant Professor on the tenure track in 1998 and rose to the rank of Professor with Tenure in 2013. Her research focus has centered broadly on the theme of neutrophil-based inflammation. While on faculty at the University of Iowa, Dr. Moreland served initially as the fellowship director for Pediatric Critical Care and served as the Division Director prior to joining UT Southwestern.
Dr. Moreland took over as the Division Chief of Pediatric Critical Care at UT Southwestern in January of 2014. She is currently the Professor of Pediatrics and Microbiology and the Thomas Fariss Marsh, Jr. Chair in Pediatrics.
Dr. Moreland was included in D Magazine's Best Doctors list for 2018 and its Best Pediatric Specialists list for 2020.
