Hi my name is Scott Weingart. I am a physician specializing in Emergency Department Critical Care. My career so far has been devoted to bringing Upstairs Care, Downstairs. That is bringing ICU care down to the ED–where it needs to be. I love my job taking care of the sickest patients, innovating new ways to do it better, and then teaching these concepts to my residents.

I host a blog and podcast called EMCrit; it has gotten a bit popular. I also tweet, tumble, consult, and sometimes even get a chance to read a book.

Of course, none of that is nearly as much fun as playing with my boy, Mace.
