For his contributions to critical care medicine, Children’s & Women’s Hospital pediatric intensivist Mukul Sehgal, M.D., M.B.A., FAAP, has been honored with a Presidential Citation from the Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM), the largest professional group of adult and pediatric critical care physicians in the United States.
The society established the Presidential Citation Award in 1995 to honor SCCM members who have made outstanding contributions to the organization.
“We are proud of the care provided daily by Dr. Sehgal to some of the region’s most critically ill and injured children,” said David Gremse, M.D., chair, and professor of the Department of Pediatrics at USA Health. “It’s very gratifying to see others recognize the positive impact he has made in our academic health system and beyond.”
Sehgal is also an assistant professor of pediatrics in the division of pediatric critical care at the University of South Alabama Frederick P. Whiddon College of Medicine, where his duties include teaching the next generation of healthcare providers.
Sehgal, who works in the pediatric intensive care unit, often sees children who are gravely ill. He is motivated, he said, by the ability to help those patients have improved outcomes.
Before moving to the Mobile area in 2019, 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 what is known as 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. Most recently, in 2022, he earned a Master of Business Administration in healthcare management from the University of South Alabama.
