Personal HistoryCurrently, I am serving as the director of the U. S. Air Force's Center for the Sustainment of Trauma and Readiness Skills located at the R Adam Cowley Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, MD. For the last 3½ years, I have had the opportunity to work with physicians, nurses and medical technicians as they prepare for deployment in support of Air Force operations around the world. In this unique role, I have joined the Departments of Anesthesiology and Critical Care at the University of Maryland while still serving on active duty with the Air Force. I will soon be retiring from the Air Force but continuing on at Shock Trauma, an institution with a primary focus on the management of trauma and surgical critical care from admission through the intensive care unit and onto rehabilitational systems built on the intensivist model. By the time of the 2007 Annual Congress, I will also have started in my new role as Director of the Geriatric Trauma Critical Care Unit.
