About the Presenter:
Dr. Burd has practiced pediatric surgery since 1997 and joined Children’s National Medical Center in 2008. He is the Chief of the Division of Trauma and Burn Surgery and an Associate Professor of Surgery and Pediatrics at the GWU School of Medicine and Health Sciences. He did his undergraduate work at Dartmouth College (BA in Mathematics) and obtained his MD at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons (MD). He did his general surgery residency at the University of Minnesota where he also obtained a PhD in Surgery/Microbiology. He did his pediatric surgery fellowship at the Children’s Hospital of Michigan in Detroit, MI. His area of research interest is in developing new approaches for improving teamwork during trauma resuscitation and improving prehospital pediatric trauma triage. For the past ten years, Dr. Burd has led a multidisciplinary research team studying errors and teamwork in trauma resuscitation. This team includes collaborators in emergency medicine and surgery, human factors, informatics, computer science and biomedical engineering. His research in trauma resuscitation is now funded by grants from the NIH.
