    Dr. Christian Sloane grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and attended UC Berkeley for his undergraduate degree in Molecular Biology. He attended medical school at UCSD, graduating in 1997. His transitional internship was at Scripps Mercy Hospital followed by residency in Emergency Medicine at UCSD where he was Chief Resident. After working for a year at Kaiser San Diego, Tri-City Medical Center, Jackson Hole, WY and UCSD, he took a full time faculty position at UCSD where he has worked since. He received the Golden Apple Teaching Award in 2005. Dr. Sloane is also a member of DMAT CA-4 and deployed with the team to the New Orleans Airport in support of the medical evacuation after Hurricane Katrina, and Hurricane Harvey, as well as immediately following the Haitian earthquake with International Relief Teams. He is a medical team manager for San Diego’s Urban Search and Rescue Team, TF-8. He served as Associate Residency Director 2008. Following that he now serves as the department Director of Quality Assurance and Improvement. Additionally, he is the medical director for Mercy Air Services in San Diego and Imperial counties, and was just appointed medical director of the North County Dispatch Joint Powers Authority, serving the plurality of Northern San Diego County EMS agencies. Current research interests include less lethal weapons and other law enforcement tools. He was a cast member on an episode of "Fight Science", that examined the use of some of the devices on the National Geographic Channel. He has also done some work with respect to injury prevention in police officers who wear body armor, and recent work in the EMS sphere, as well as error prevention in medicine. In his spare time he enjoys time with his family, sailing, and flying general aviation aircraft.
