A multi-award winning educator and lecturer, Mel founded the program based on humor, insight, and the knowledge that EM is the best hardest specialty, but it really matters.

Jan Shoenberger, MD FACEP

An internationally recognized educator who has been faculty on EM:RAP and EMA for over a decade, Jan is the EM Residency Program Director at USC and is double-boarded in EM and Hospice and Palliative Medicine. An exceptional and upbeat speaker and educator, her years of experience are linked with remarkable and practical clinical insight.

Stuart Swadron, MD, FRCPC

Known as “Captain Cortex” for a reason. Formally a long-term Residency Program Director at USC, Stuart is notable for an incredible knowledge base and the ability to make complex topics simple. After twenty plus years in Emergency Medicine in addition to his years as a general practice doc in Canada, untold hours of speaking on the CME circuit has made Stuart one of EM’s truly elite educators.

Vanessa Cardy, MD

As a doctor who has spent her career practicing and teaching medicine in rural and remote regions (of Canada) practicing a remarkable combo of EM, family medicine and inpatient/critical care, Vanessa brings a unique perspective to discussions of Emergency Medicine - from making critical decisions when resources are limited, to dealing with the dreaded “ice-fog."

Jessica Mason, MD

Fellowship trained in medical education, Jess brings a background in the arts, ventriloquism, and even magic to her work. She’s been working on EM:RAP for over five years and is truly one of the leading stars of Emergency Medicine education. She’s developed remarkable programs with short-form video, patient interviews, heartbreakingly beautiful narrative learning pieces, and so much more. When not making the best audio and video education on the planet, she’s a full time academic at UCSF Fresno.

Michael Menchine, MD, MPH

Associate Professor of Clinical Emergency Medicine and Executive Vice Chair at the Keck School of Medicine of the University of Southern California, Michael is a double-boarded geek in IM and EM from UCLA. He’s also done a research fellowship and is an expert in methodology. For the past 10 years, he’s been an attending physician at “big county” in LA merging the care of the underserved with his impressive research CV. Insightful, critical and entertaining, Mike is helping transform EMA for a whole new generation of critically thinking clinicians.

Sanjay Arora, MD

Sanjay’s ability to make complex topics simple and interesting is a rare gift. He completed his clinical training at the University of California, Los Angeles in 2005 and then joined the faculty at USC where he currently serves as the Vice Chair of Scholarship and Research in the Department of Emergency Medicine. While amassing an impressive research CV, Sanjay has been one of the leading speakers on the CME circuit for over a decade. Together with Mike, he is helping make research accessible to all levels of practitioner through EMA.

William Mallon, MD

One of the most celebrated educators and thought leaders in Emergency Medicine, Billy has decades of experience practicing and teaching high-acuity EM in the U.S. He’s lectured and taught on every continent around the globe (except Antarctica!), has served as a training program director, and is deeply passionate about the development of EM throughout the world.

Heidi James, MD

Heidi is an award winning educator, assistant professor, and family physician who is passionate about the role of generalism in medicine. When not in clinic, seeing admissions in the ED or rounding on inpatients, she can usually be found helping out in the OR or doing house calls.
