Dr. Daniel Ridelman was born and raised in Guatemala. After obtaining his MD degree from San Carlos University, Dr. Ridelman moved to Detroit to complete his postgraduate training in Emergency Medicine at the Sinai-Grace Hospital/WSU residency program. Since then, he has been practicing as an attending physician at the Detroit Medical Center and a clinical assistant professor at Wayne State University. Dr. Ridelman is also the founding assistant program director of the International Emergency Medicine fellowship program and he was recently appointed Vice-Chief of the Emergency Department at Harper University Hospital.
As the first Guatemalan Emergency Medicine-trained physician, Dr. Ridelman has been working in his home country for the last few years to help develop the specialty, in close collaboration with local institutions and with Dr. Anthony J. Dean of the University of Pennsylvania. Among other key milestones, he has been part of the organization of the first Emergency Medicine conference, the creation of the Guatemalan Emergency Medicine association (www.agme.org.gt) along with content creation and maintenance of its website, the creation and execution of the first 2 Emergency Medicine residency programs and, more recently, the partnership with the UCLA/EMRAP:GO Innovations and Access in Medical Education fellowship program. Additionally, Dr. Ridelman has established relationships in multiple countries in Latin America and has been invited to speak at Emergency Medicine conferences in El Salvador, Costa Rica, Chile and, most recently, the International Conference on Emergency Medicine 2020 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. As part of his efforts to support Emergency Medicine education in Latin America, Dr. Ridelman is currently leading the translation of Rosh Review as well as Dr. Richard Levitan’s EMRA Airway Guide, valuable resources that will be free of cost to all Spanish-speaking EM learners in the region.
