  • Background

    Dr. Nadkarni is medical and research director of the Center for Simulation, Advanced Education and Innovation at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. He holds the institution’s Endowed Chair in Pediatric Critical
    Care Medicine and has been an international leader for development and implementation of critical care and resuscitation science in both resource-rich and resource-poor environments.

    He has studied and is regularly invited to lecture on these topics at leading academic centers around the world.

    Dr. Nadkarni previously served as director of CHOP’s Pediatric Critical Care Medicine fellowship program, the first such program established in the world, and has mentored and trained more than 100 physicians, advanced practice nurses, post-doctorate fellows, and international trainees in the course of his career. The Center for Simulation, Advanced Education and Innovation at CHOP collaborates with scientists, engineers, industry, and human factors specialists to develop state-of-the art simulation techniques and simulators, provides advanced training in highly-realistic simulated environments, and offers consultation and training programs at the local, regional, national and international levels.

    Dr. Nadkarni is an active and influential participant in the most influential international societies and organizations in this field. For more than 20 years, he has volunteered with Operation Smile International to provide craniofacial surgical repair for more than 2,000 children in resource-limited settings. He serves on the Board of Directors of the World Federation of Pediatric Intensive and Critical Care Societies, has chaired the American Heart Association’s International Committee, and currently is the chairman of the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (which links the American Heart Association and resuscitation councils of Canada, Europe, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Latin America and Africa).
