Dr. Schwab is currently Professor of Surgery. In 1987, Dr. Schwab established a Level I Regional Resource Trauma Center, Surgical Critical Care Service, the PennSTAR Flight Program and the Communications Center at the University of Pennsylvania Medical Center. Today, Dr. Schwab’s surgical practice focuses on caring for the severely injured patient and developing regional trauma and emergency care systems. He is one of the first traumatologists to study the effects of trauma in the elderly patient. In addition, Dr. Schwab is active in the field of violence prevention and continues to teach trauma surgeons how to become leaders in the public health effort to reduce firearm-related injuries. He directs the University of Pennsylvania Trauma Network. This involves administrating and coordinating several centers throughout Eastern Pennsylvania with Penn’s Level I trauma center to enhance the quality of trauma and emergency care. Lastly, he directs the fellowship program in trauma surgery and critical care at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, a program with ten trainees annually and over 70 graduates located throughout the world.

Research

Dr. Schwab is Chief of the Division and is known internationally for his work in damage control surgery and the care of complex trauma. In addition, he is the director of the Firearm and Injury Center at Penn (FICAP). This Center develops collaborative research to address violent injury and its repercussions on individual, families and communities and is a member of the Philadelphia Collaborative Violence Prevention Center with The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), a CDC-funded Academic Center of Excellence in Youth Violence Prevention.

Dr. Schwab’s current research interests include the development of an inter-disciplinary research network in stress and injury, the examination of trends and patterns of firearm injury and mortality, and participation in an National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded “Space-Time Adolescent Risk Study” to measure the extent to which adolescents are exposed to risk and protective factors over the course of their daily activities on the likelihood of being assaulted.
