Dr. Rebecca Smith-Coggins is a practicing emergency medicine physician at Stanford University Medical Center and the Associate Dean for Medical Student Life Advising at the Stanford School of Medicine. She has been an ardent cheerleader for physician wellness long before it hit center stage. Initially fascinated by the challenge of lessening the impact of the dark, ugly night shift, she wired up residents and attendings with EEG/EOG leads to study their sleep patterns. She started the EM residency at Stanford and was the first Residency Director for 12 years before she pivoted to the medical school environment and became an associate dean. She developed, implemented and published a medical student mistreatment reduction program and has more recently taken on the worsening issue of patient aggression toward doctors.
