Biography

Biographical information for Utpal S Bhalala, MD (Year 2012)

Utpal S Bhalala, MD joined the Department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine (ACCM) of 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, Baltimore, MD in 2012. He 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 Vitamin D status of exclusively breast-fed infants won National Research Award in India. Being always excited to take on the challenges and inspired to learn, he decided to pursue career in pediatric critical care medicine in the USA. In 2005, He spent 4 months as an observer at the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit of University of Maryland under the mentorship of Dr. Alice Ackerman and Dr. Wynne Morrison. This experience fueled his enthusiasm to learn evidence-based, multidisciplinary-led practice of critical care medicine and family-centered care in the USA. In 2006, He joined Pediatric Residency program at Childrens Hospital of New Jersey at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center which was then chaired by Dr. Timothy Yeh. During his residency training, he gained tremendous amount of exposure to clinical practice, research and education in general and subspecialty pediatrics. He had opportunities to teach medical students, juniors and nursing staff, work on research projects, volunteer at pediatric oncolgy summer camp and community school sports medicine camp, networking with colleagues. His fellowship training in pediatric critical care medicine at The Childrens Hospital Of Philadelphia (CHOP), the oldest and one of the largest free standing childrens hospitals in the US strengthened his ability to excel in taking care of critically ill and injured children. It also allowed him perform cutting-edge research under mentorship of Dr. Vinay Nadkarni and Robert Berg, two giants in science of cardiac arrest and CPR. Currently he is Chair-Elect of the Steering Committee of the In-Training Section of Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM) and enjoys networking with In-training professionals and organizing In-Training sessions and workshops on job interview at the SCCM Annual Congress. His organizational skills and his ability to collaborate and network with senior members of the society have benefitted many In-training professionals over last two years. In fact the In-training panel discussion on job interview, which he organized, was very well received at the congress. His long-term career objective is to develop an academic career that incorporates exceptional clinical care with a focus of translational research on cardiac arrest and resuscitation. Eventually, his goal is to become an independent, fully funded investigator focusing on cardiac arrest and resuscitation. His final long-term career objective will be to mentor future investigators in critical care medicine, especially in the field of cardiac arrest and resuscitation.
