Biography

Dr. Utpal Bhalala is an assistant professor of anesthesiology and critical care medicine at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. His areas of clinical expertise include critical care medicine, with a focus on pediatric cardiac critical care.

Dr. Bhalala completed medical school at Seth G. S. Medical College and King Edward Memorial Hospital, University of Mumbai—one of the top training programs in India. Being inspired through the special needs and challenges of pediatric patients during his rotatory internship, he opted for residency training in pediatrics. He was honored with Diploma Child Health by College of Physicians and Surgeons of Bombay in 2002 and Diplomate of National Board in Pediatrics in 2004 after his pediatric residency training in Mumbai.

His dissertation work on the vitamin D status of exclusively breast-fed infants won a National Research Award in India. Always excited to take on the challenges and inspired to learn, he decided to pursue a career in pediatric critical care medicine in the U.S. In 2005, he spent four months as an observer at the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit of University of Maryland. This experience fueled his enthusiasm to learn evidence-based, multidisciplinary-led practice of critical care medicine and family-centered care.

In 2006, he joined the Pediatric Residency program at Children’s Hospital of New Jersey at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center. His fellowship training in pediatric critical care medicine at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) strengthened his ability to excel in taking care of critically ill and injured children. It also allowed him perform cutting-edge research under the mentorship of Dr. Vinay Nadkarni and Robert Berg, two giants in science of cardiac arrest and CPR.

He joined The Johns Hopkins Hospital as a full-time faculty in pediatric anesthesiology and critical care medicine and an assistant professor of anesthesiology, critical care medicine and pediatrics at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in 2012.
