Improving global prehospital and emergency medicine, public health, and disaster health care and preparedness

Andrew Shanes

Andrew Shanes is an emergency medicine resident physician at NewYork-Presbyterian – Queens Hospital in Flushing, New York. Prior to beginning his residency, Andrew attended medical school at the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine (DO ’24) where he was the president of the UNE COM WADEM Student Club. During this time Andrew established and helped implement BLS and Stop the Bleed training into the medical school’s orientation program and developed a mock mass casualty training for pre-clinical medical students.

Andrew has also been a member of his hometown EMS agency since high school, which initially sparked his passion for medicine, specifically emergency, prehospital/disaster, and addiction medicine. He still maintains his EMT and American Heart Association BLS Instructor certifications and teaches in the local community. He has contributed to one of the first published papers on Naloxone re-dosing and has studied the impact of resource allocation on opioid related fatalities in the State of Vermont. Andrew is hoping to pursue an EMS/Disaster medicine fellowship following the completion of his emergency medicine residency.
