James Bohnhoff, MD is a general pediatrician at MMP Portland Pediatrics, and a health services researcher through the Center for Interdisciplinary Population Health Research.

He completed his medical training and pediatrics residency at the University of Pittsburgh and the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, and then went on to complete a research fellowship and masters in science through the University of Pittsburgh. His research asks how access to pediatric health services is impacted by the structures of our society and healthcare systems. When he came to Maine in 2022, James was enthusiastic to apply this research focus towards addressing the state’s unique challenges of rurality, socioeconomic disparities, and a limited healthcare workforce.

At home, James enjoys spending time with his wife, daughter, and son. They all love hiking, beaches, snow forts, and books. James’ son also loves trucks.
