Patrick J. McNamara
As a neonatal intensivist whose interest is in the developing heart, my passion is to understand "why" and prioritize thoughtful clinical decision making in the NICU. The establishment of a neonatal hemodynamics program at the University of Iowa is precedent setting in the United States and serves as a national landmark program for the university.
