Peter Conrad


My name is Peter Conrad. I am a second-year resident at Indiana University in the Department of Internal Medicine. I am interested in pursuing a fellowship in Critical Care/Pulmonary. I completed medical school at Wayne State University in Detroit and am from Grand Rapids, MI originally. I became interested in delirium research during my PGY-I year of residency when I was taking care of critically ill patients in the ICU. This was especially true of patients sick with COVID-19, given the novel and diverse clinical presentations associated with these patients. I look forward to continuing research into delirium, particularly in the area of biomarkers that may be associated with delirium prognosis and outcome. Outside of the professional setting, I enjoy both hiking as well as camping. I am particularly fond of doing so in northern Michigan as well as in national parks throughout the country.
