Saman Kashani, MD, MSc completed his clinical training at LAC+USC after which he stayed on as an EMS Fellow and is now a member of the EMS Division. Pursuing a career focused on pre-hospital care and emergency medical services has been a goal of Dr. Kashani’s since first working as an EMT in college. He considers the prehospital environment an integral part of the communities’ public health. His interest in public health began as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Suriname where he served for over 2 years. He formalized his public health training at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. With respect to research, his interests lie in creating robust and innovative EMS systems, both in the urban and resource poor settings. Currently, he continues to work closely with local fire departments where he has helped develop and administer novel prehospital units such as the Sobriety Emergency Response (SOBER) Unit and Advanced Practice Provider (APRU) Unit.
