James Broselow, MD
Chief Medical Officer Emeritus and Co-founder
After graduating from Dartmouth College with honors in economics, Dr. Broselow obtained his medical degree from New Jersey College of Medicine and Dentistry and entered the field of family practice, in which he became board certified and practiced in Frankenmuth Michigan. He continued to become board certified in Emergency Medicine. It was while working in the emergency department of a community hospital in Hickory, North Carolina, that he recognized how difficult and stressful it was for him and his team to care for acutely ill or injured children. He has conducted original research concerning the correlation between length and weight in children, from which the “Broselow Tape” was born.
He has worked with Dr. Allen Hinkle on the Broselow-Hinkle organizer and co-developed the Broselow tape and subsequent Broselow-Luten System with Robert Luten, MD.
Through his numerous and significant innovations in pediatric care, the Broselow name has become one of the most widely recognized in the field of emergency medicine. He is the recipient of the Institute for Safe Medical Practices Lifetime Achievement Award.
