Dr. McCredie received her undergraduate degree in medical sciences at the University of St. Andrews; her medical degree from University of Manchester; and her internal medicine training at University of Manchester. Dr. McCredie moved to Canada in 2009 to complete a critical care fellowship and then a further sub-specialized neurocritical care fellowship, both at the University of Toronto. Her certifications include internal medicine from Royal College of Physicians U.K., internal medicine and critical care medicine from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, and neurocritical care medicine from the United Council for Neurological Subspecialties in the United States. She received additional doctoral research training in clinical epidemiology at the University of Toronto. Her research focuses on clinical epidemiology methods to examine the relationship between process of care, structure and outcome for critically ill patients with acute brain injury. Her research also focuses on evaluating pathophysiologic mechanisms contributing to secondary brain injury processes during critical illness, looking specifically at the role of blood transfusions in traumatic brain injury and the effects on cerebral tissue oxygenation. She has also published on topics related to the withdrawal of life-sustaining therapies in severe traumatic brain injury, airway management strategies for acutely brain injured patients, and statistical modelling methods.
