Dan Dworkis M.D. Ph.D., believes deeply that all of us can improve how we function under pressure and in doing so perform at our best when we are needed the most. Dan is an attending emergency physician and professor at USC’s Keck School of Medicine, where he works at the Los Angeles County and USC Medical Center (one of the largest and busiest emergency departments in the country). Before that, he did his training with the Brigham and Women’s Hospital/Massachusetts General Hospital Harvard Affiliated Emergency Medicine Residency. Dan is the founder of The Emergency Mind project which helps individuals and teams perform better under pressure both in and out of the emergency department. His book, The Emergency Mind: Wiring Your Brain for Performance Under Pressure, is used by people working under pressure across a variety of disciplines from emergency medicine to entrepreneurship to athletics and beyond.
