Petra Krutilova, MD

Clinical Fellow


I was born in Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia and completed my medical school in my hometown at Comenius University. After graduation, I started Internal Medicine residency at an academic center affiliated with Charles University (University Hospital Vinohrady) in Prague, Czech Republic. Two years into residency, I moved to the Bay Area where I had the opportunity to work at Children’s Hospital Oakland Research Institute lab focused on HDL cholesterol diagnostics. I completed my Internal Medicine residency at Mount Sinai Hospital in Chicago and moved to St. Louis for Endocrinology fellowship at Washington University.

My main clinical and research interests are health equity and diabetes. I am participating in several research projects related to social determinants of health including evaluating the impact of medically tailored meals in individuals with type 2 diabetes and food insecurity, creating gestational diabetes education modules for nursing staff, and studying the consequences of the lack of redundancy of diabetes technology supplies in patients using insulin pumps/CGMs.

In my free time, I enjoy food, traveling, skiing, hiking, and going to the symphony and ballet.
