Dr. Alison “Ali” Miles is an assistant professor of anesthesiology and critical care medicine at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Her area of clinical expertise is critical care. Dr. Miles serves as the associate fellowship program director of the Pediatric Critical Care Fellowship Program.
She has worked as an attending physician in the PICU since July of 2013. She provides clinical care to critically ill children with a broad spectrum of conditions who arrive in the PICU from the emergency department or operating room, or as referrals from other hospitals. She finds it very rewarding to watch children recover from life-threatening conditions and rejoin their families.

Research & Publications
Dr. Miles conducts research on the experience of moral distress by PICU providers. She has interviewed practitioners involved in the care of long-term patients who remained in the PICU from two months to two years. By identifying what was difficult about these cases and what was learned, she hopes to develop strategies to better manage clinician stress. In turn, clinicians with lower stress levels will be in a better position to improve the quality of life for patients who are living longer with chronic diseases. In the long term, Dr. Miles would like to improve the field of pediatric palliative care for patients, families and care providers.
