Who runs ACCRAC?

Jed Wolpaw

My name is Jed Wolpaw.  I am an associate professor of anesthesia and critical care medicine at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.  I am board certified in anesthesia and in adult critical care medicine.  I completed medical school and Anesthesia residency at UCSF in San Francisco.  I then did a critical care fellowship at Johns Hopkins and stayed on faculty when I finished my fellowship.  I have a master’s degree in education and dedicate a large portion of my time to teaching medical students, residents and fellows.  My research interests focus on medical education, communication and physician well-being.  My goal in starting this podcast is to provide an accessible way for anyone interested in anesthesia and critical care to review basic topics, ongoing research, and interesting debates while working out or commuting.

Hi there! My name is Sophia and I am a fourth-year medical student at George Washington University in Washington, DC, applying into anesthesiology! I grew up outside of Philadelphia in NJ. Apart from listening to ACCRAC in my free time, I enjoy tennis, running, choir, and going to museums. I’ve always been grateful to the mentors I’ve had through my medical journey, which has influenced my joy in mentoring others as well. I love that ACCRAC makes anesthesia education accessible and easy to digest— I am grateful to be a part of it!

Hi everyone! I’m a fourth year medical student at NYITCOM. I’m originally from the good ol’ Staten Island, NY (yes I took a ferry from Staten Island to Manhattan everyday in undergrad). Speaking of undergrad, I majored in Biochem & minored in biology — I guess I’m a bit of a bio enthusiast? In my spare time I love checking national parks off my list, baking, doing some freelance writing and teaching my British Shorthair kitten tricks (we have not been successful of yet). I came across ACCRAC when I started my fourth year anesthesia rotations & I am thrilled to become a team member!
