"I chose neonatology as a career because of the opportunity to make dramatic impacts in children's lives. I have the privilege of helping critically ill babies, who might otherwise die or suffer serious injuries, recover and lead long, healthy lives. I am particularly interested in helping young doctors become better physicians so they can provide the best care to the children they will see. This interest is focused in helping them learn how best to resuscitate newborn babies at the moment of birth, when they are particularly vulnerable."

Dr. Strandjord's primary research interests are in quality improvement and medical education, with emphasis in newborn care and resuscitation. His current projects include the use of simulation and video recording of newborn resuscitations in the education of newborn caregivers.

Dr. Strandjord is also assists in the management of a clinical databases for all of the Seattle Children's Hospital Neonatology sites of practice. This data serves as a resource for quality improvement projects and clinical research projects.
