Academic Bio

During his Emergency Medicine residency at Duke, Dr. Smith was encouraged to pursue an area of focused professional development. His interests lead him to Disaster Medicine, a specialty that focuses on the medical aspects of disaster preparation, response, and mitigation. As a resident, he worked with various local and state EMS and disaster groups to gain skills in mass gathering medical control, hospital/ED incident command, and trained with the state Special Operations Response Team. Since moving to Utah, he has been a part of the Utah Disaster Medical Assistance Team (UT-1 DMAT) and Utah Task Force 1 (UT TF-1) Urban Search and Rescue Team and plans to pursue an active role with state disaster management as well as become involved with hospital disaser preparedness.

After residency, Dr. Smith stayed on as an attending physician at Duke for several months before coming to the University of Utah. While at Duke, he was able to work as an academic clinician training residents and students, a role he has continued at the University of Utah. The majority of Dr. Smith's clinical shifts are at the University's South Jordan Health Center Emergency Department. It is there that Dr. Smith plans on helping develop the stand-alone Emergency Department's capability and experience treating patients in the community.

As an Emergency Physician, Dr. Smith takes care of all-comers to the Emergency Department with experience treating a variety of complaints ranging from patients with minor aches and pains to the severely ill and injured.
