Kristan Staudenmayer, MD
Assistant Professor of Surgery

Kristan Staudenmayer, MD is interested in studying the structure and performance of healthcare systems, particularly as they impact vulnerable populations. I have used trauma systems as a model, because it is a system-within-the-system and is always in a state of evolution. My focus has primarily been on how to improve the care for elderly trauma victims,one of the most vulnerable patient populations, and how to improve access to care for all severely injured patients.
