Dr. Nadkarni is medical and research director of the Center for Simulation, Advanced Education and Innovation at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. He holds the institution’s Endowed Chair in Pediatric Critical
Care Medicine and has been an international leader for development and implementation of critical care and resuscitation science in both resource-rich and resource-poor environments.
He has studied and is regularly invited to lecture on these topics at leading academic centers around the world.
Dr. Nadkarni previously served as director of CHOP’s Pediatric Critical Care Medicine fellowship program, the first such program established in the world, and has mentored and trained more than 100 physicians, advanced practice nurses, post-doctorate fellows, and international trainees in the course of his career. The Center for Simulation, Advanced Education and Innovation at CHOP collaborates with scientists, engineers, industry, and human factors specialists to develop state-of-the art simulation techniques and simulators, provides advanced training in highly-realistic simulated environments, and offers consultation and training programs at the local, regional, national and international levels.
Dr. Nadkarni is an active and influential participant in the most influential international societies and organizations in this field. For more than 20 years, he has volunteered with Operation Smile International to provide craniofacial surgical repair for more than 2,000 children in resource-limited settings. He serves on the Board of Directors of the World Federation of Pediatric Intensive and Critical Care Societies, has chaired the American Heart Association’s International Committee, and currently is the chairman of the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (which links the American Heart Association and resuscitation councils of Canada, Europe, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, Latin America and Africa).

Patient Experience Ratings
About the Patient Experience Rating System
The Patient Experience Rating is an average of all responses to the care provider related questions shown above from our nationally-recognized Press Ganey Patient Satisfaction Survey. Patients that are treated in outpatient or hospital environments may receive different surveys, and the volume of responses will vary by question.
Responses are measured on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best score.
We are committed to true transparency. However, to ensure the comments are fair and correctly attributed, we review each one before posting to the website. We exclude entire comments that disclose patient's protected health information, are off-topic, or include other confidential or inappropriate content. Comments will appear on provider bios only if providers have a minimum number of comments.
Comments are shared internally for education purposes to ensure that we are doing our very best for the patients and families for whom we are privileged to care.
The comments are submitted by patients and families and reflect their views and opinions. The comments are not endorsed by and do not reflect the views of Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
