Biography

Dr. Michael J. Cooper is a pediatric cardiologist at the UCSF Pediatric Heart Centers in San Ramon and Modesto, Calif. Cooper is board certified in pediatrics and pediatric cardiology. He provides outpatient care for children with congenital and acquired heart conditions. His research focuses on the development and utilization of echocardiography in the non-invasive diagnosis of heart defects in children.

A native of Berkeley, Calif., Cooper relocated to Israel after high school, studied at Hebrew University in Jerusalem and graduated from Tel Aviv University Sackler School of Medicine. Upon returning to the U.S., he completed a pediatric internship and residency at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Oakland, Calif., where he served as chief resident. Subsequently, he completed a fellowship in pediatric cardiology at UCSF.

Cooper enjoyed a 30-year career with the Northern California Kaiser Permanente Medical Group, serving as director of pediatric cardiology at three Kaiser hospitals in the region. During this time, he maintained an active relationship with UCSF through a long-standing clinical appointment as professor of pediatrics in the department of cardiology. Cooper also has taken an active role in serving children with heart defects around the world who lack access to care.Additional Languages
