Michael Stevens, M.D.

2nd Year Fellow
Medical School: Medical College of Wisconsin
Residency: Loyola University Medical Center
Research Interests:

My research interest involves using machine learning to help predict which patients on the general pediatric floor could decompensate. Using our model, we will better be able to facilitate timely transfers to the ICU prior to an acute event or intervene while the patient is still on the general floor and prevent their ICU transfer entirely. I am working in collaboration with the Michigan Center for Integrative Research in Critical Care (MCIRCC).
