Nadir Ijaz, M.D., recently completed his clinical training in pediatric critical care medicine at New York Presbyterian-Columbia University Medical Center in June 2022. Dr. Ijaz earned his undergraduate degree in Chemistry and Biology from Duke University and his Doctor of Medicine degree from Stanford University School of Medicine, with a scholarly concentration in Health Services and Policy Research, as well as training in implementation science through the Training Institute for Dissemination and Implementation Research in Health, Australia. In his early career, Dr. Ijaz led a research team in the first epidemiologic study of pediatric emergencies in Pakistan, led quality improvement projects related to hand hygiene and one-hour sepsis bundle implementation, and was involved in mixed methods work investigating the barriers to and facilitators of patient-provider health policy discussions in primary care settings. Most recently, he focused on evaluating the effects of a community-based primary care intervention program on care-seeking behavior for childhood illness in Ghana.
Research and Career Interests: Dr. Ijaz's interests lie at the intersection of child health, acute care delivery, and implementation science in resource-diverse settings. As a self-identified "community intensivist," he seeks to partner long-term with communities and institutions to understand where and how evidence-based practices and technologies are implemented, with the goal of safely and effectively reducing the implementation gap among various groups.
