Dr. Capriolo’s research interests are related to resuscitation and improving neonatal outcomes through simulation education. In 2020, Dr. Capriolo became the Director of Neonatal Resuscitation, providing resuscitation education to residents, fellows, and faculty at the University of Maryland. She runs a monthly simulation course for neonatal-perinatal medicine fellows, and leads monthly skills sessions for pediatric residents. Recently, Dr. Capriolo has expanded a simulation curriculum to affiliate hospitals with a primary focus on improving respiratory management in the delivery room. Her interest in initial care of the neonate extends to initiatives aimed at reducing intubation and obtaining admission labs from the umbilical cord. As Associate Program Director (APD) of the Neonatal-Perinatal Fellowship since 2020, she takes an active role in all aspects of the fellow’s training.
