Susan A. Stern, M.D. is Professor and Founding Chair of the Department of Emergency Medicine at the University of Washington in Seattle WA. Dr. Stern received her medical degree from Case Western Reserve University in 1987. She completed an Emergency Medicine Residency and a Research Fellowship focused in Resuscitation Science, both at the University of Cincinnati. Following completion of fellowship, she took a faculty position at the University of Michigan (1993-2009) in the Department of Emergency Medicine, where she continued her research efforts to develop and evaluate alternative novel resuscitation strategies for the very early period following traumatic hemorrhagic shock. Her laboratory was among the first to establish a large animal polytrauma model of combined traumatic brain injury (TBI) and uncontrolled hemorrhage.
Dr. Stern’s academic career has also included significant involvement in medical education. While at the University of Michigan, Dr. Stern served as Associate Chair for Education within the Department of Emergency Medicine from 2004 through 2009. Dr. Stern has been active within the Society for Academic Emergency Medicine since 1994, serving as Chair of the Program Committee from 1998 -2000 and as a member of the Board of Directors from 2000-2005.
In May 2009, Dr. Stern moved to the University of Washington (UW) to develop the Department of Emergency Medicine. Since beginning that appointment, Dr. Stern has recruited over fifty faculty and fellows, led the integration and alignment of the University of Washington Medical Center and Harborview Medical Center EDs, as well as overseen the development and implementation of the University of Washington School of Medicine Emergency Medicine residency program and several fellowship programs, and a robust research program. Her laboratory team continues to be quite productive.
