Bhiken I. Naik MBBCh, MSCR
Vice Chair of Clinical Research

Welcome to Clinical Research in the Department of Anesthesiology at the University of Virginia led by the Vice Chair Dr. Bhiken Naik, MBBCh, MSCR. Our work is a collaboration amongst physicians, clinical research coordinators, statisticians, bioinformaticist, and data scientists. Our Clinical research spans both prospective clinical studies and retrospective, observational research.

We work across multiple disciplines and specialties to improve patient safety and identify quality improvement opportunities. We create and define objective metrics to evaluate physician performance and provide opportunities for cost effective and reproducible research.

Furthermore, the Division provides data support to administrative systems within the department and the institution. This includes a generation of reports on clinical practice and outcomes, dashboard maintenance at the departmental and institutional levels, and evaluation and benchmarking of educational activities (e.g. case listings for residents) and clinical workload (e.g. call distribution).
