Dr. Barclay Stewart is a practicing surgeon at UW Medicine, Harborview. He spent two years as an NIH–funded Northern/Pacific Fogarty Global Health Fellow working to improve surgical care in low– and middle–income countries (LMICs). Dr. Stewart's research focused on pragmatic solutions to enhance care of the injured, burned and those in need of emergency surgery in health facilities in Ghana. He did this through systematic assessment of resource need, characterization of disease burden and modeling the effect of strategic interventions. In addition, he studied surgical epidemiology in complex humanitarian emergencies and from population–based studies of surgical need and injury burden in Nepal, Sierra Leone, and Iraq. Dr Stewart is pursuing a career in trauma, burns, and acute care surgery with attention on LMICs and aims to bring evidence–based decision making to humanitarian aid and surgical capacity development in LMIC health systems.
