Joseph A Tyndall, MD, MPH, FACEP, is a graduate of the University of Maryland School of Medicine and completed his residency in emergency medicine at University of Maryland Medical Center and the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center. He is board-certified in emergency medicine and is a fellow of the American College of Emergency Physicians. He began his academic career in New York, where he was involved in undergraduate medical education as a student clerkship director and, eventually, the residency program director in emergency medicine at the Brooklyn Hospital Center. He also served as an associate medical director of emergency services at the Brookdale University Hospital and Medical Center. While in New York, Dr. Tyndall held faculty appointments as an assistant clinical professor of emergency medicine at the Weill Medical College of Cornell University and assistant professor of emergency medicine at State University of New York Health Sciences Center in Brooklyn. 

Dr. Tyndall holds an executive master’s degree in health services management and health policy from the Mailman School of Public Health of Columbia University. He was recruited to the University of Florida in 2006 as vice chairman of emergency medicine and was appointed chair of emergency medicine in 2008. He holds leadership positions and is active on several boards at the local, state and national levels in emergency medicine. His academic and research interests include the epidemiology and management of acute asthma, trauma care and traumatic brain injury, clinical operations research and health services research.
