Nicholas Brown

Assistant Professor, Division of Pediatric Critical Care Medicine
Faculty, Department of Pediatrics


Dr. Brown completed training in General Pediatrics and Pediatric Critical Care at the University of Minnesota where he became interested in congenital heart disease and extracorporeal support. In order to provide the best possible care for his patients, he pursued additional training in Cardiac Intensive Care at Texas Children's Hospital.
Upon returning to Minnesota, he is hoping to instill the principles of a high reliability organization into the Pediatric Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit and the Heart Center to improve patient outcomes; gain further expertise in management of hemostasis for patients requiring extracorporeal support by working with Marie Steiner who has appointments in pediatric critical care and hematology; and contribute to the education of residents and fellows by developing a curriculum applying fundamental cardiorespiratory physiology to the unique pathology of patients with complex congenital heart disease.
