Dr. Salih's academic interests are in medical ethics, neonatal resuscitation and medical simulation. She actively participated in the development of the ethics curriculum for neonatology fellows and she is currently responsible for the implementation and evaluation of the program. She also has a long standing passion to study perinatal consultations, especially the decision making process that the parents have to go through. Dr. Salih is also involved in neonatal resuscitation, especially in-hospital resuscitation of the newborn. She is currently developing a new team approach for in-hospital resuscitation of the newborn. This new approach/program involves several faculty/staff development programs for infrequently used procedures and also mock codes using simulation technique. Dr. Salih is very interested in the application of simulation to medical education, particularly to neonatal resuscitation, from delivery room to NICU. She is planning to explore how simulation improves the team building and team ethics in resuscitation of the newborn. Dr. Salih also enjoys her role as a clinician educator caring for ill newborns and their families and teaching, mentoring medical students, residents and fellows. She is also a member of several hospital committees including IU Health Ethics Committee, Riley Ethics Committee, IU Health Pediatric Code Committee and Riley NICU Research Committee.
