Medical Director, Public Safety and Emergency Medical Services
Dallas County (TX), USA
Paul Pepe, MD,MPH, Dallas County (TX) EMS/Public Safety Medical Director, leads the so-called “Eagles” global-alliance. For 5-decades, he has pioneered many of our advances in resuscitation-medicine/EMS. A critical-care clinician-scientist turned “street doctor” in Seattle (1970s), he became the first full-time EMS medical director (Houston/1980s-early 90s), forging the EMS-subspecialty, dramatically-increasing survival-rates, and producing landmark research. Serving as Pennsylvania's Commonwealth Emergency Medical Director (late 1990s), he then became Dallas County's Medical Director (2000) and Emergency Medicine Professor/Chair at UT Southwestern/Parkland Emergency-Trauma Center. Co-founding NAEMSP (1984) and becoming first President-Elect, he now facilitates rapid boots-on-the-ground global informational-exchange through the Eagles, accordingly becoming NAEMT "Medical-Director-of-the-Year" (2020). During a lifetime-achievement ceremony (ACEP/2005), he was already monikered "the most accomplished EMS physician of our generation", yet he still continues to garner prestigious best-scientific-paper awards annually (SCCM:2020,2021,2022,2023;WSAEM:2022;ACEP:2022),
