Service is the focus of Dr. Engle’s academic mission. Clinical service to sick neonates and their parents is his major priority. Dr. Engle also serves the Section (Co-Director of the Neonatal ECMO Program Director of Clinical Affairs and Medical Director of Riley NICU), the Department of Pediatrics, the School of Medicine and the Medical Staff in several administrative capacities. He also participates in medical training through bedside and didactic education and in a number of diverse quality improvement and research projects that focus on extracorporeal membrane oxygenation, bronchopulmonary dysplasia, infection control, oxygen saturation limits in extremely preterm infants, and resuscitation of high risk newborns. Education of neonatologists and trainees through his present role as co-editor of NeoReviews Plus, an online education program sponsored by the American Academy of Pediatrics and past role as a member of the Committee on Fetus and Newborn are additional interests and activities that he enjoys.
