Joy Deanna Howell, M.D.
Pediatric Critical Care Medicine
My interest in pediatric critical care was sparked during my residency, when I found myself attracted to the physiology-based management of critically ill and injured patients.
Dr. Joy Howell received her medical degree (M.D.) at the State University of New York Health Science Center in Brooklyn, NY and completed her residency in pediatrics at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. She returned to New York City to complete a Fellowship in Pediatric Critical Care at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center.
Her research during fellowship involved mechanisms of lung injury, with a special interest in in Asthma and Hypoxemic Respiratory Failure. She enjoys participating in fellow, resident and medical student education both at Weill Cornell as well as New York Hospital of Queens. She received the Award for Teaching Excellence in 2006 and 2010. She has served as the Program Director for the Pediatric Critical Care Medicine Fellowship since 2007.
As a physician with varied clinical, teaching and administrative responsibilities, Dr. Howell acknowledges direct patient care is the most satisfying part of her work.
