Angela Gardner MD, FACEP
Angela Gardner, MD, FACEP

 

Current Professional Position: Assistant Professor, Division of Emergency Medicine, Department of Surgery, University of Texas Medical Branch, Galveston, TX

Internship and Residency: Emergency Medicine Residency, Texas Tech Regional Academic Health Center, El Paso, TX (1987-1990); Transitional Internship, Texas Tech Regional Academic Health Center, El Paso, TX (1986-1987)

Dr. Gardner is an assistant professor at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston, Texas. She played a key role in the passage of medical liability reform in her home state of Texas and sees tort reform as a crucial goal on the national level.

“The issue is really about preserving patients’ access to quality emergency care," she said. "If steps aren’t taken on a national level to further protect emergency physicians and specialists in the emergency department, emergency department doors will close and that would be a catastrophe for medical care in this country.”

Dr. Gardner has served in numerous leadership capacities with ACEP on a national level and in the Texas chapter of ACEP.  She served on the ACEP Board of Directors for six years prior to her election as president-elect, and served as vice president of the ACEP Board of Directors this past year.  Dr. Gardner served in all chapter offices for Texas ACEP, including as president of the chapter in 2003.

Dr. Gardner was chair of National Report Card Task Force in 2006, when ACEP presented the first-ever state-by-state look at the support for emergency medical services across the nation.  She is the Board’s liaison to the next Report Card, which will be released in December 2008.

Dr. Gardner earned her medical degree at the Texas Tech Health Sciences Center in Lubbock, Texas and completed her residency in emergency medicine at the Texas Tech Regional Academic Health Center in El Paso. agardner@acep.org
