USA Health Children’s & Women’s Hospital has expanded its pediatric care capabilities with the addition of Mukul Sehgal, M.D., F.A.A.P., a pediatric intensivist who also serves as an assistant professor of pediatrics at the University of South Alabama College of Medicine.

“Pediatric critical care medicine involves taking care of very sick children, sometimes on the verge of life and death,” Sehgal said. “The gratification of improving the outcomes of these children, in my opinion, is unmatched to any other aspect of medicine.”

Before moving to Mobile in August, Sehgal completed a pediatric critical care fellowship at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital in Miami, Florida. He is board certified in pediatrics by the American Academy of Pediatrics. From 2013 to 2016, he was a resident at St. Peter’s University Hospital in New Brunswick, New Jersey.

During residency, Sehgal earned a mini Master of Business Administration degree in strategic healthcare management from Rutgers Business School. In 2012, he was awarded a medical degree from Seth GS Medical College in Mumbai, India.

Sehgal wanted to work within an academic health setting, he said, because of the opportunity to train residents and medical students: “I enjoy working in simulation labs and performing mock codes with residents, which in turn helps to prepare them for potential life-threatening situations with their patients.”

Making a difference matters to Sehgal: “There is no better field than medicine to truly help others,” he said. “Human physiology always fascinated me and a quest to learn more about it drew me into the field of medicine.”
