Erich Boomgarden, MSIV
Saint Louis UniversityI am finishing my final year of medical school at Saint Louis University and have a comprehensive background working to integrate emerging technologies into medicine and patient care. The online customizable patient safety checklist is an application that I helped develop for ISOBS which enhances patient safety by better informing patients of their upcoming procedures. I am interested in pursuing a career in Radiology. Currently, as a member SLU’s Peer Learning Committee, a group committed to helping medical students optimize scores on board exams, I developed a web application that helps students increase retention. I look forward to continuing to creatively incorporate technology into the practice of medicine.

Beth Israel Deaconess Medical CenterI got involved with ISOBS as a first year anesthesia resident when I was working together with Dr. Shapiro at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. I developed an interest in patient safety and getting connected with ISOBS seemed like a great opportunity. My interests involve patient safety, global health and medicine, and humanism in medicine. I am continuing to work with ISOBS in further patient safety initiatives and I am also pursuing a fellowship in cardiothoracic anesthesiology.

Beth Israel Deaconess Medical CenterI first got involved with ISOBS in 2013 as an anesthesiology resident at BIDMC. I am interested in patient safety and quality improvement efforts and was drawn to ISOBS because of the tangible difference the organization has made in enhancing patient care. As I enter my final year of residency, I look forward to continued collaboration with the institution to expand our collective knowledge and understanding of this growing area of anesthesia.
