Biography

Dr. Bradford Winters is an associate professor of anesthesiology and critical care medicine and an assistant professor of neurological surgery, neurology and surgery at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. He specializes in general surgical critical care as well as neurocritical care.

Dr. Winters serves as the medical director of the Postgraduate Critical Care Residency for Physician Assistants. He is also medical director of the Johns Hopkins Hospital Adult Rapid Response System Program and assistant residency director and director of medical student education for the Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine.

He earned a bachelor of science from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 1983. He received his M.D. and Ph.D. from the State University of New York at Buffalo School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, where he was part of the medical scientist training program. He completed his internship in internal medicine at the Millard Fillmore Hospital in Buffalo, followed by a residency and fellowship in anesthesiology and critical care medicine at The Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Dr. Winters has been on the Johns Hopkins faculty as an anesthesiologist and intensivist since 1997, and is board certified as both an anesthesiologist and critical care medicine specialist. He is a clinical intensivist attending in the cardiac surgical, general surgical and neurocritical care units. He is also a neuroanesthesiologist.

Dr. Winters’ research interests have grown over the years, from microbiology with a focus in microbial molecular pathogenesis to vascular biology. He became interested in his current field, patient safety and quality, through his efforts to develop and implement Johns Hopkins’ Adult Rapid Response Program and integrate it into the hospital’s overall emergency response system of code and other emergency teams. He has a special interest in technological solutions and strategies to improve patient safety and quality.

    Research Summary

    Dr. Winters’ research interests have ranged from a 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.

    His current research focuses on patient safety, patient care in the intensive care unit, quality health care, evidence-based medicine, and the measurement and evaluation of safety efforts. His projects include creating measures for rapid response systems outcomes, developing guidelines for policy development for patient safety initiatives and researching pain management in post-craniotomy patients.
