Research Fellow, PGY4
Scripps Mercy Hospital, San Diego CA; Naval Medical Center San Diego, US. Navy.
My name is Lieutenant Commander Matthew Joseph Carr, MD, PGY4 General Surgery Resident at the Naval Medical Center, San Diego, and Research Fellow at Scripps Mercy Hospital Trauma Surgery Dept who I worked with for this research.
I began my medical career as a paramedic in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, where I attended the University of Pittsburgh for my undergraduate degree. I entered the United States Navy in 2009 and attended the Dept of Defense's medical school, the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences where I graduated with a medical doctorate in 2013. I completed my general surgery internship at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in 2014, afetrwards I attended flight school for the US Navy in Pensacola, Florida and where I underwent training to become a flight surgeon. I was stationed onboard CVN-75, the USS Harry. S. Truman, for a deployement as the ship's flight surgeon. Following this 3 year tour I resumed my graduate medical education in Naval Medical Center San Diego where I am currently a PGY 4. My research background has included emergency medical service personnel and crew training, acute care surgery, and trauma surgery specifically hemorrhagic shock in non compressible wounds. It is a pleasure to be selected to present my team's work on the management of small bowel obstruction as it applies to teaching versus non teaching hospital status, and I thank the AAST for allowing me the chance to do so.
