Whiz Kids: Research looks at handling pediatric crises effectively

Over several previous posts, I've highlighted projects from the the Clinical Anatomy Research Scholars (CARS) program at Stanford. If you haven't seen my earlier entries, CARS allowed 15 interns to come campus this summer to do research alongside faculty in a variety of fields, including medicine, surgical simulation, robots, and biomedical visualization.

Those interns also made short YouTube videos describing the work and entered them in NPR's "What's Your Big Idea?" contest. In this video, Colleen Hamilton explains her research project with the Center for Advanced Pediatric & Perinatal Education, which focused on how to handle pediatric crises effectively.

The CARS program is based in the Division of Clinical Anatomy and is directed by W. Paul Brown, DDS.
