Congratulations To Our 2020-2021 Administrative Fellow!

EMA would like to welcome our 2020-2021 Administrative Fellow Alexander Ruby, MD!

Med School: University of Chicago-Pritzker School of Medicine
Med School: London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine - MSc in Public Health
Residency: Cook County Health

Dr. Alex Ruby, a Washington D.C. native, recently made the move to California after completing his medical training. His career in medicine allows him to indulge his love of science while still interacting with a wide variety of people, all while having a direct and palpable impact on their lives. For emergency medicine specifically, Dr. Ruby says, "it's an honor to be able to provide care to people in a time of particular need. Emergency medicine allows one to do this on a daily basis while still keeping work interesting and hands-on."

He joined EMA because of its balance between theory and practice, which he says makes for a great education. "I think it's natural to see areas for improvement in our places of work and want to contribute to changing things for the better. The EMA-CMU fellowship will give me much better insight into approaching those problems, whether big or small, as well as the skills to effect change."

Outside of medicine, he enjoys exploring LA as well as all things dairy. Welcome aboard!
