    Dr. Gabriel Wardi completed his undergraduate and graduate education in Atlanta. He moved to San Diego for his residency in Emergency Medicine where he served as the education chief resident during his final year of residency. He is the first graduate of the joint Critical Care Medicine fellowship offered by the Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care and Department of Emergency Medicine. He joined the faculty in July 2017 and attends in both the emergency department and the ICUs at UCSD. Dr. Wardi’s research interests include sepsis, the ED-ICU interface, resuscitation, cardiac arrest management, and development of novel educational curriculum. He is the Medical Director for Hospital Sepsis at UC San Diego and directs the Residency Transition Course for the School of Medicine. Outside the hospital he enjoys international travel, cooking, running and reading.
