AACPD Candidate – Stahl

David Stahl, MD

The Ohio State University

I attended medical school at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) after which, I completed residency and critical care fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital. I currently practice critical care anesthesiology and obstetric anesthesiology at The Ohio State University where I am starting my second year as Residency Program Director.
I have an interest in leveraging technology to improve both resident education, and the administrative workload of Program Directors. I serve as the Chair Designee for the Advancement of Technology in Education Committee at the Society for Education in Anesthesia. I also serve on the Education Track Subcommittees for Obstetric Anesthesia and Critical Care at the ASA. During my first year at Program Director at OSU, we launched a web-based system I designed called REMODEL: REsident MilestOne-baseD Educational Learning. The system engages resident learners by allowing them to preference what cases they want to do, but also requires them to set an educational objective for the day. These educational objectives are then sent to faculty when room assignments are made, and faculty are asked after working with the resident to provide formative feedback about the resident’s educational objective to help residents improve. As Program Director, REMODEL helps me by automating the integration between our electronic medical record and learning management system to generate evaluations based on which residents worked with which attendings every day. As councilor, I would collaborate across the AACPD, to share solutions Program Directors can implement to help their residents and improve their administrative workload.

Last year, I presented our approach to the ABA’s Absence in Training Policy at the SAAAPM Annual Meeting. I learned as much as I shared during that presentation. As Councilor, I would seek out opinions and ideas to ensure the AACPD remains a viable and engaged group even during the challenges of a pandemic. Thank you for your consideration.
