Stuart P. Swadron, MD, FACEP, was born and raised in Canada and is a graduate of the University of Toronto, Faculty of Medicine. He began his medical career as a general practitioner in beautiful British Columbia. The challenging cases that he encountered working in remote and underserved communities eventually led him to pursue specialty training in emergency medicine and emigrate to the United States.

He has remained at USC ever since, serving in various roles, including residency Program Director and Vice-Chair for Education in the Department of Emergency Medicine, and as an Assistant Dean at the Keck School of Medicine.

He has been involved with research and curriculum development for learners at all levels, from the most junior undergraduate students to the most seasoned practitioners. He has lectured and taught across the United States and throughout the world, and his voice is a familiar one on popular emergency medicine podcasts.
Dr. Swadron currently serves as an Editor-in-Chief of CorePendium, an on-line reference for emergency and acute care medicine and is an Adjunct Clinical Professor of Emergency Medicine and Medical Education at the Keck School of Medicine.
