Dr. Doughty is Associate Fellowship Director and Director of the Pediatric Resident Rotation in the Emergency Department. Her research interests lie in developing the use of medical simulation in the ED, including in-situ simulation, procedural workshops, and outreach to pre-hospital providers. In addition, she has developed an educational curriculum (GEMS) for general pediatricians working in the emergency setting, which has led to general pediatricians taking on increasingly advanced roles in the department. She continues her work on treatment of sickle cell patients in the emergency department.
