HSC faculty member heads emergency physicians group (8-11-99)

Ann J. Burgardt, M.D., assistant professor of emergency medical technology at The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, was elected president of the Alamo Area Emergency Physicians recently.

The group examines delivery of emergency medical care in the Bexar County area. "Every meeting includes an intellectual program on an aspect of emergency care, such as new antibiotics for infectious diseases, new cardiac medications for heart attack and stroke, and new resuscitation techniques and other innovations in the care of trauma victims," Dr. Burgardt said. "We cover the whole breadth of topics--any situation that occurs in an emergency room or ambulance."

Dr. Burgardt has served on the Health Science Center faculty since 1992. She received her medical degree from The University of New Mexico in Albuquerque. She teaches emergency medical technicians, paramedics, firefighters, and medical students and residents through the Health Science Center's Department of Emergency Medical Technology.

She is the assistant medical director of the San Antonio Fire Department Emergency Medical Services.
