As the EMS Fellowship Program Director in the Department of Emergency Medicine, my overall goal is to establish a premier training program in the new subspecialty of EMS medicine. In addition, as EMS Section Chief, I work to improve emergency medicine resident education by increasing exposure to the prehospital care environment as well and increase department involvement in the local, regional and state prehospital systems, including multiple aspects of both traditional EMS systems and nontraditional prehospital physician response with disaster response, and tactical medicine. As an Associate Medical Director for the San Antonio Fire Department, my goal is to work with the Office of the Medical Director in the Emergency Health Sciences Department to increase the use of evidence-based treatment protocols as well as provide innovative continuing education for prehospital providers to improve patient care in the prehospital environment and further incorporate EMS into the overall healthcare system.
