Lee Wood, MD
By Lee Wood, DO, TCEP Board candidate member

I am honored to have been selected to serve as the Candidate Member of the TCEP Board of Directors. Thank you for your support! Let me tell you a little about myself- I grew up in Washington State and originally came to Texas 5 year ago for medical school. I attended TCOM where I spent two years in Fort Worth and two years in Corpus Christi, and I’m now about to start my PGY2 year at Baylor in Houston. I have followed a long and non-traditional route to get here, but EM has been a passion of mine since I entered the fire academy at 18. Since that time I have worked in EMS, on patient care teams in community emergency departments, and now as a resident in a large academic institution serving a county trauma center. I’ve been blessed to share this journey with my amazing wife of almost twelve years, and our two amazing children ages 10 and 6.

I share this because whether you are a medical student interested in EM, a resident at one of our 11 amazing residency programs here in Texas, an attending at one of those programs, or a doc out in the community, I hope we can relate to each other in some way. The work that TCEP does is extremely important. Right now battles are being fought throughout the state and the country to protect our ability to deliver quality emergency care to our patients, to ensure those patients have access to qualified, residency trained providers, and to safeguard our ability to be fairly compensated for the work that we do. My goal as the resident representative on the TCEP board is to help each of our 400+ resident members understand the vital role that TCEP plays in this process, and to encourage active participation now and throughout their careers.

I am here to help, please let me know what I can do for you. You can reach me by email at woodl186@gmail.com. Thanks!
