I am willing to mentor a student who is interested in creating a scholarly project related to pediatric burn care. Our facility at Shriners Hospital for Children – Boston includes many facets of medicine; acute critical care, long-term plastic reconstruction, infectious disease, ENT, hyper-metabolism, psychiatry, and public health. Shriners Hospital receives patients with complex and severe burn injuries. Our patient population is comprised of patients from the New England area as well as international patients. We also conduct outreach missions in the Ukraine and Honduras.
For most research projects, a three month time frame may be too short given the necessary IRB approval process. We believe a suitable research study could be successfully completed within 1 year.
However, we do have an idea to develop a library of educational content for patients/families to explain their treatment course. A project such as this could be completed within 3 months.
