- My name is Andrew Sloas and I am a board-certified emergency medicine physician and an assistant clinical professor of emergency medicine at the University of Texas Medical School at Houston. I am also finishing a pediatric emergency medicine fellowship at Texas Children’s Hospital in Houston, Texas.
I graduated medical school in 2001 and completed and orthopaedic rotating surgical internship at the National Naval Medical Center San Diego before attending Naval Flight Surgery School in 2002. I was stationed at Camp Pendleton California for the remainder of my tour of duty, which took me to Kuwait and Iraq with the United States Marine Corps in 2003 for Operation Iraqi Freedom. After returning from the war, I continued work as a Naval Flight Surgeon until the time of my discharge as a Lieutenant Commander in 2006. At that time, I completed my residency in emergency medicine at the University of Texas Medical School at Houston. I then departed academics briefly for community emergency medicine, but quickly had the epiphany that my interests were in education, critical care and pediatric emergency medicine. I thank God daily for my wife, children and the ability to practice emergency medicine at the busiest trauma center in the country.
I hope you find the PEM ED Podcast to be an entertaining and enjoyable way to digest critically important emergency pediatric concepts.
