Eric Gantwerker, MD joins Level Ex as new VP, Medical Director
Level Ex is excited to have Dr. Eric Gantwerker joining the team!
Eric will serve as the company’s medical lead, providing clinical oversight for our video games used by physicians and other healthcare professionals. His expansive role includes working closely with partners from medical societies and industries to develop innovative educational programs using the company’s mobile, AR and VR experiences. Eric will also be leading efficacy studies to measure physician performance, and working with Level Ex’s team of 100+ physician advisors to conduct needs assessments and expand into new specialties.
Eric is an ENT surgeon with a specialization in reconstructing airways of pediatric patients. Prior to him joining Level Ex, Eric was a pediatric airway surgeon at Children’s Medical Center Dallas where he did extensive work with simulation and ENT airway courses, as well as in quality improvement - specifically in children with complex aerodigestive disorders. He was also Co-Course Director for an international tracheostomy meeting in Dallas this past February. He also blogs regularly for Harvard’s Macy Institute: http://www.harvardmacy.org/index.php/hmi-blogs/blogger/ericgantwerker
A Clinical Instructor at Harvard Medical School and an Assistant Professor at UT Southwestern, Eric also holds a Master’s in Medical Science in Medical Education with a focus on educational technology from Harvard Medical School, and a Masters of Science in Physiology and Biophysics from Georgetown University. He has been on the forefront of motivating hospitals and the physician community to use emerging technologies for medical education and learning with enhanced visualization.
Outside of medicine, Eric loves to get outside – whether it’s taking Mozart, his 7-year-old Border Collie/Lab mix to the park, or international travel: He paraglided and whitewater rafted his way through Peru last summer, and recently traveled to India for two weeks over New Year’s. Medicine also runs in the Gantwerker family, as Eric’s brother is a neurosurgeon specializing in spine surgery in Los Angeles.
Welcome to Level Ex, Eric!
