Dr. Smith started his career in Ohio and ended up in the greatest city there is, New York City!  His passion for interprofessional education stems from his own experiences as a graduate student, where pharmacy and medicine sat in the same classroom much of their didactic career.  After realizing the value of such a program, it’s something that he has strived to realize since he left the Midwest. 

Dr. Smith’s research background is focused on developing our understanding of opioid use and prescribing, and pain management through multimodal Receptor/Channel Targeted Analgesia. 

Dr. Smith’s professional affiliations include American Society of Health System Pharmacists, where he serves as a member of the Section of Clinical Specialists and Scientists’ Advisory Group on Emergency Care, as well as active involvement in number committees through American College of Clinical Pharmacy, Society of Critical Care Medicine, and the New York Society of Health System Pharmacists.
