The MCIRCC is an interdisciplinary, team-based center for innovative research and translational care in acute illness and injury. The institute offers fellowships in pediatric critical care and global health, and provides a platform for collaborative research that reduces barriers to innovation. Among the other things, the center is dedicated to providing a realistic simulation of human disease.
MCIRCC is a team science hub for innovative, interdisciplinary, collaborative, translational research on acute illnesses and injuries
The MCIRCC is a team science network that supports interdisciplinary, collaborative, translational research and clinical trials of novel treatments for acute illnesses and injuries. The teams consist of basic and clinical science faculty, and the research program should be in the form of an R21 grant. The application process is invitation-only, and teams must meet eligibility criteria, including a clinical and basic science faculty member. The application will be reviewed by a Senior Associate Dean and a designated committee of faculty. In July, the College of Medicine Dean will make a final decision on funding. The successful team must also submit an R01 application to the NIH, and must publish two peer-reviewed articles describing their research.
The MCIRCC is an administratively anchored department of emergency medicine and is comprised of multiple team science centers. The centers’ research emphasize interdisciplinary collaboration and cutting-edge research, biomedical technology development, and clinical research training. The program also provides students with opportunities to join other multidisciplinary research networks.
It offers fellowships in pediatric critical care global health
The pediatric critical care fellowship program provides students with research training and hands-on experience. Fellows are involved in interdisciplinary teams that provide patient care and participate in core didactic conferences. They participate in simulations and learn to think critically about clinical cases. Fellows also participate in departmental meetings and participate in journal clubs. The pediatric critical care fellowship provides an ideal setting for students to develop critical thinking skills while participating in cutting-edge research.
This program prepares fellows to become leaders in their field. Fellows will conduct cutting-edge research and act as advocates for children with life-threatening medical conditions.
It provides viable, demonstrable models to accurately simulate complex human disease
The Center for Integrative Research in Critical Care (CIRCC) is a national research organization that provides viable, demonstrable models to accurately simulate the complex human disease environment. It is based on the premise that patient-specific data can improve the quality of clinical research. For example, patient-specific data can be entered in real time and used to create predictive models that can identify likely outcomes and flag any possible adverse consequences.
The Center for Integrative Research in Critical Care has been in operation for four years with the goal of advancing the practice of critical care by providing viable, demonstrable models for clinical trials. The Center is comprised of multiple researchers and research units working together to help improve the quality of clinical trials and patient care. In addition, it includes a clinical research unit to assist with the development of study proposals.
It reduces barriers to innovation
The HDMP approach has the potential to minimize organizational, technological and behavioral barriers that hamper the adoption of new technologies in the healthcare industry. With HDMP, the hospital can have a single digital management platform that can access data from different sources and minimize compatibility issues. Moreover, HDMP can optimize workflows and reduce technical complexity. Moreover, this approach addresses a major problem faced by health care organizations: the lack of access to information.
In order to be successful, a CCO research program should promote broad collaboration and consolidate academic and administrative resources, and alleviate common barriers to research innovation. These barriers include suboptimal collaboration between healthcare professionals, over-segmentation of research into specific organ systems, and a failure to involve researchers from different disciplines. The ultimate goal of the integrated research program is to improve the productivity and quality of research. It also has to achieve specific deliverables, including grant funding, promotion of faculty, and development of a research mentor pool.
