We believe that scholarship should be integrated into overall career interests and goals from the very outset of fellowship. The selection of a scholarly project for each fellow is highly individualized, focusing on his or her career goals in order to emphasize the development of skills and tools that he or she will need to succeed. Fellows may choose to follow the career track of a master clinician, a clinician educator, a clinical/translational research scholar, or a basic research scholar during their time in our program. Mentor selection is thoughtfully facilitated by fellowship program leadership during the first year of fellowship and may draw mentors from within the division and/or from the larger Washington University community.

Faculty within the division of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine have a wide range of interests, including:  

  • Traumatic and hypoxic/ischemic brain injury
  • Overwhelming infection
  • Immunity
  • Curriculum development and educational assessments
  • Long-term outcomes following PICU stays
  • Novel monitoring of cardiac output and arrhythmias
  • Acute kidney injury
  • Biomedical informatics and ECMO
