Stephen M Cohn MD, FACS I am a native of Oakland, California, and attended Baylor College of Medicine after completing a Biochemistry degree at University of California, Santa Barbara. I completed my general surgical training and trauma/critical care fellowship at Boston University. I joined Yale University School of Medicine as Chief of the Trauma Service, but within a few months was called to serve with the US Army Medical Corp in Desert Storm. Upon return to New Haven, I was asked to assume the position as Division Chief of Trauma and Surgical Critical Care where I built a successful ACS Level One Trauma Center, and a surgical critical care fellowship. In addition, I started an active research program utilizing animal models of trauma. I later assumed the role of Medical Director of the Ryder Trauma Center, as the Robert Zeppa Endowed Professor of Surgery at the University of Miami and ran the Divisions of Trauma and Surgical Critical Care. Subsequently, I served as the Chairman of the Department of Surgery at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. Recently, I joined Hackensack Meridian School of Medicine and Hackensack University Medical Center where I plan to continue to operate, educate and be an active researcher. I have produced more than 250 publications, have completed my seventh textbook (6 with CRC press), have had extensive funded research, am a member of many professional organizations, and serve as a reviewer for numerous journals, among many other activities. My academic and research interests are in the areas of: trauma and combat casualty care and surgical infections. I have been the recipient of several teaching awards, including the Teacher of the Year awards at Boston University, University of Massachusetts, Yale, and Northwell Health, and a Lifetime Achievement in Education award from University of Miami Department of Surgery. I am most proud, professionally, of the large number (>100) of ICU, Trauma, and Research Fellows and numerous residents and students I have had the pleasure to help educate.
