Role: 
Surgeon - Cardiothoracic

Background

Dr. Engelman is the Medical Director of the Heart, Vascular and Critical Care Units at Baystate Medical Center.  He is an Associate Professor of Surgery at The University of Massachusetts-Baystate, and an Associate Professor-Adjunct at Tufts University School of Medicine. He recently started the Enhanced Recovery After Cardiac Surgery Collaborative to nationally standardize best practices. He is the Vice President of the Foundation for the Advancement of Cardiothoracic Surgical Care, President of the Massachusetts Society of Thoracic Surgeons and also serves on multiple Statewide Oversight committees. Dr. Engelman is a member of the prestegious American Association of Thoracic Surgeons and participates on three national workforces for the Society of Thoracic Surgeons.  He was the Past President of the 21st Century Cardiothoracic Surgical Society. He also serves on the Board of Directors of the Baycare PPO and ACO and is Vice President of the local Independent Physician Organization.

Dr. Engelman is the principal investigator on multiple research projects, has published over 40 peer- reviewed publications, and participates in an international taskforce standardizing approaches for the prevention of postoperative acute kidney injury. He travels extensively lecturing on advances in critical care medicine, healthcare informatics and finance, multimodal analgesia, and fast-track recovery after cardiac surgery. He has served as a consultant and speaker for Mallinckrodt pharmaceuticals and Edwards Lifescience. He was named the National ACS/STS Health Policy Scholar in 2016.

Dr. Engelman is a graduate of the Executive Leadership Program in Health Policy and Management at The Heller School of Brandeis University. He was a Research Fellow at the University of Connecticut School of Medicine. He completed his cardiothoracic Surgical training at Brigham & Women’s Hospital in Boston. He received his B.A. with honors from the University of Pennsylvania and M.D. from New York University School of Medicine.

Other Interests

I am a Cardiac Surgeon with a special interest in critical care medicine, healthcare economics, outcomes, financial risk arrangements, and new technology. I am actively promoting the leadership role of Cardiothoracic Surgeons on a multidisciplinary critical care team.  I have founded the Enhanced Recovery After Cardiac Surgery Society (www.eracs.org). The goal is to disseminate best practices in cost-effective methods to improve patients' recoery after cardiac surgery.
