Marit Kristine Smedsrud MD, PhD is a consultant paediatric cardiologist at the Department of Paediatric Cardiology at Oslo University Hospital, Rikshospitalet and Postdoctoral fellow at ProCardio. Smedsrud got her medical degree from University of Oslo in 2006 and she did her internship at Molde Hospital.

In 2013 she defended her PhD thesis entitled “Assessment of incipient global myocardial dysfunction by speckle tracking echocardiography. Clinical studies with emphasis on patients with stable coronary artery disease and patients with chronic aortic regurgitation”. Her supervisors were Professor Thor Edvardsen and Professor Otto Smiseth.

Smedsrud is a specialist in paediatrics and in paediatric cardiology. Her research is focused on children with genetic cardiac diseases.

Dr. Smedsrud was awarded with the Marie Spångberg Prize for the most valuable scientific original article written by a Norwegian female doctor in 2022 for her work on children with arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy. She did also receive the Oslo University Hospital prize for outstanding research article. The awarded article, «Highly malignant disease in childhood-onset arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy», was published in European Heart Journal.
