    Collapse overview
    Dr. Mitchell completed her pediatric residency at the University of Chicago. After serving as a Chief Resident, Dr. Mitchell completed her fellowship in Pediatric Critical Care at the University of Chicago. During this time, she established the first pediatric resident resuscitation simulation curriculum. Since her appointment to the faculty in 2011, Dr. Mitchell has been instrumental to the successful implementation of several simulation-based initiatives, including the PICU Simulation Task Force, the Pediatric Critical Care/Emergency Medicine Fellows Hybrid Simulation Course, and the New Fellows Boot Camp. Dr. Mitchell currently works closely with the UC Simulation Center overseeing many pediatric simulation programs. Dr. Mitchell currently serves as the Program Director for the Pediatric Critical Care Fellowship, Faculty Director of PALS, Core Faculty for the Pediatric residency program, and is a Fellow of the Academy of Distinguished Medical Educators at The University of Chicago. Dr. Mitchell's research interests include using Interprofessional Simulation Based Medical Education to improve team communication and patient care.
