Dr. Brad Winters earned his medical degree and PhD in Microbiology from the State University of New York at Buffalo, where he was a student in the combined Medical Scientist Training Program. He performed his internship in internal medicine at The Millard Fillmore Hospital in Buffalo and then completed his residency education in anesthesiology at The Johns Hopkins Hospital. In 1997, after completing a multi-disciplinary critical care fellowship at Johns Hopkins, Dr. Winters joined the staff as an intensivist and neuro-anesthesiologist.
Dr. Winters’ clinical interests include a wide range of critical care areas. He attends as an intensivist in the neuro-critical care unit, as well as in the general surgical and cardiac surgical care units. He is also the medical director of the Neurosciences Rapid Response Team program and based on this experience, is developing similar rapid response teams for the other surgical areas of the hospital. Dr. Winters spends the remainder of his clinical time primarily providing anesthesia care for intra-cranial and spine surgery.
He has long been involved in the education of residents and fellows in several areas and has served as the director of Medical Student Education for the Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine from 1999-2002 and 2006 to the present.
Dr. Winters’ research interests have ranged from his background in microbiology where his doctorate thesis examined the molecular pathogenesis of S. pyogenes to several years of vascular biology research examining the relationships between obesity and vasomotor tone to his current interests in patient safety and quality of care research. Some of the projects he is currently working on include: developing measures for rapid response systems outcomes, developing guidelines for policy development of patient safety initiatives, and pain management in post-craniotomy patients.
