Research And Education

Current research in the Division of Critical Care focuses on improving education through laboratory simulations (see Advances and Recognitions section). We are participating in a national Quality Improvement program, the NEAR4KIDS Study, to improve the safety of endotracheal intubation.

Critical Care faculty are involved both in resident and medical student education. Typically, four physician residents work in the unit per month, a combination of second- or third-year pediatric residents and second-year emergency medicine residents. Third- and fourth-year medical students also experience learning opportunities in the PICU.

Critical care faculty members also teach their colleagues and other professionals Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS).

Stony Brook Children's Services is offering Telehealth services which will allow our patients to receive our high-quality care from the safety and privacy of their home.

To see if your pediatric needs can be met virtually, please call Stony Brook Children's Service at (631) 444-KIDS.
