Joselyn S. Davidson, MD

  • Pediatric Anesthesia

After receiving her medical degree at University of Washington, Joselyn Davidson, M.D., completed her anesthesia residency at Virginia Mason and a pediatric anesthesia fellowship at Oregon Health Sciences University. She joined the anesthesia group at Shriners Children's Portland in 2010 and has served as chief of anesthesia since 2016. She is board certified in anesthesiology and has received subspecialty board certification in pediatric anesthesiology.

Dr. Davidson was drawn to Shriners Children's because of the hospital's mission and commitment to caring for the child's overall health and wellness. She knew that she wanted to care for children, saying, "I love this community, and I was excited to join a specialty hospital providing truly top-quality care. From the moment I arrived at Shriners Children's, I knew the opportunity was special. I have now been here for 11 years and I can honestly say that I love my job. As anesthesiologists, we have a special opportunity to focus completely on making the perioperative experience safe and comfortable for our patients and families."

Outside of Shriners Children's, Dr. Davidson enjoys spending time with her husband, their two children, and their extended families. They like playing board games, reading, biking and exploring the Pacific Northwest in their travel trailer.
