Jason P. Stopyra, MD, FACEP, FAEMS, Assistant Professor Wake Forest University School of Medicine.
Following my graduation from residency I entered private practice at a community hospital and an EMS Medical Director. I enjoyed this role for nearly 12 years and was actively involved in everything from Tactical Medical Support to curriculum development for the Community Paramedic Program. We continued a great tradition of excellent patient care provided to our citizens through 911 Emergency Response, Disaster Preparedness, Aeromedical and Critical Care Transport.
In 2013, I accepted an academic position with Wake Forest University with a concentration in Emergency Medical Services. In 2016 I was named the North Carolina Doctor of the Year. As a Board Certified EMS Physician, I look forward to continuing to advance the care that paramedics provide their communities through studying prehospital cardiopulmonary patient risk stratification.
