    Collapse overview
    Priti Jani MD, MPH is a pediatric critical care specialist who takes care of critically ill infants and children in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) and Pediatric Sedation service.

    Dr. Jani’s scholarly focus lies at the intersection of research in simulation-based medical education and resuscitation quality improvement. She develops and investigates educational curricula and quality improvement initiatives that will result in improved individual, team and system level performance during resuscitation events with translation to improved patient outcomes.

    A dedicated educator, she utilizes her expertise in simulation to direct and develop curricula for residents, nurses and pediatric care teams. Serving as the chair of the CPR committee and cardiac arrest lead on the pediatric resuscitation quality committee, she is highly invested in enhancing the clinical program for resuscitation quality and safety at Comer Children’s Hospital. On a national level, Dr. Jani actively participates with organizations such as the PediRES-Q network, a national collaborative dedicated to producing evidence-based solutions for quality improvement initiatives and outcomes during pediatric cardiopulmonary arrest. Additionally, she serves on the executive committee of the Chicago Simulation Consortium. In this role, she provides leadership for a multidisciplinary group of simulation-based health professions educators across the Chicagoland area in sharing resources, enhancing professional development and facilitating collaborative research.
