Grace Chong is pursuing clinical research in the use of ultrasound-based measurements to improve the assessment of intravascular volume in various disease states, with the ultimate goal of using ultrasonography to accurately guide therapies and improve patient outcomes. She plans to expand the use of bedside ultrasonography in studying dynamic measurements in critically ill intubated patients in various disease states, and assessing therapeutic interventions on patient outcomes, such as mortality, hospital days, need for vasoactive medications, and incidence of renal insufficiency.
Chong holds a BA in biology from the University of Chicago and an MD from its Pritzker School of Medicine. She completed her residency training in internal medicine and pediatrics at the University of Chicago, where she served as chief resident in pediatrics. She also completed her fellowship training at the University of Chicago’s Department of Pediatrics, Section of Critical Care. Prior to her faculty appointment, she served as a clinical associate in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of Chicago.
