As an assistant professor at the Max Rady College of Medicine and an affiliate scientist at St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto, Dr. Markus Ziesmann is at the forefront of exploring new and innovative ways to improve health care delivery to trauma patients.
With a focus on inpatient care during acute hospital stays for trauma patients, who often have limited participation in primary health care, Dr. Ziesmann is working to unlock the full potential of the health care system to improve the lives of patients who have suffered traumatic injuries. He is particularly interested in the impact of opportunistic health care delivery to these patients, and how it can benefit both individual patients and the larger public health system.
From exploring the intersection of viral infections and trauma patients, to investigating the role of primary care delivery in the aftermath of a traumatic injury, Dr. Ziesmann's research is both comprehensive and cutting-edge. As a member of the Canadian Urgent Care Surgery Collaborative (CANUCS), Dr. Ziesmann is part of a community of like-minded researchers and practitioners who are dedicated to improving the lives of trauma patients through cutting-edge research and innovative solutions.
With his commitment to improving patient outcomes and his passion for exploring the frontiers of trauma care, Dr. Ziesmann is a leading voice in the field, inspiring other researchers and practitioners to join him on this important mission.
