Since December 2012, we have been fortunate to have Dr. Michael Zwank as Editorial Review Group Chair for Emergency Medicine for Doody’s Review Service. In the last five years, he has coordinated reviews of 106 of the 170 books we have sent him. Dr. Zwank has recruited 37 different reviewers to evaluate the majority of the books, but he also has written a good number of reviews himself – 43, in fact.
Dr. Zwank is an emergency physician at Regions Hospital, a busy tertiary care hospital and Level I Trauma Center. In addition, he is an associate professor in the Department of Emergency Medicine at the University of Minnesota Medical School and is engaged in the teaching of many residents and medical students. At Regions Hospital, he is the Emergency Ultrasound Fellowship Director and the Co-chair of the hospital-wide Point-of-Care Ultrasound Committee.
Dr. Zwank has a wide range of research interests, including medical imaging, resource utilization, and ultrasound-guided procedures. However, his first passion in medicine has been, and always will be, taking care of patients in the emergency department.
