Philosophy of Care
True well-being requires an understanding of the interconnectedness of systems ranging from the individual to the institutional and meaningful healing requires a holistic approach.
My main area of interests are pediatric psychosomatic medicine, neurodevelopmental disorders such as ADHD and 22q11.2 deletion syndrome, and medical student and resident education. I am working with a multi-disciplinary team on kids with 22q11.2 deletion syndrome.
Dr. Brahmbhatt's research interests includes working on improving understanding of the impact of medical illness on mental health and vice versa especially pertaining to children.
