About the “Conversations” Series:
“How’d they get there? Conversations with COS and CHST Alumni” are casual, 45-minute Zoom talks with alumni from RIT’s College of Science and College of Health Sciences and Technology. Degrees from RIT can open doors to exciting graduate, doctoral, and professional work all over the world. Join “Conversations” to find out how these alumni got from RIT to where they are today – and how you might be able to follow in those footsteps.

Speaker Bio:
Mark Romig is a 1998 graduate of the Rochester Institute of Technology College of Science where he received a Bachelor of Science in biology. He completed his medical degree at the St. George’s University School of Medicine in 2004, prior to a residency in Internal Medicine at Maryland General Hospital, where he was Chief Resident. Dr. Romig concluded his training with a fellowship in Critical Care Medicine at the Johns Hopkins University. In 2008 Romig joined the faculty of the Johns Hopkins University in the department of Anesthesiology and Critical Care Medicine, where he is currently an Assistant Professor. His primary clinical focus has been on improving surgical critical care throughput through his leadership of the Central Intensivist Program. Dr. Romig is also the Associate Director of the Biocontainment Unit, which has put him on the front lines of the Covid-19 pandemic. Since joining the faculty, Dr. Romig has been exploring the intersections of hospital culture, patient-care workflows, and technological advancement. His early work researched the impact of implementing nocturnal telemedicine on staff engagement and satisfaction. The lessoned learned on this project informed his later work in information management and device integration, in an undertaking called Project Emerge. Emerge aimed to eliminate preventable harm in healthcare by improving situational awareness for clinicians through automated data gathering, including novel sensor technology, and intuitive information displays. Emerge has been featured prominently in the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal. Dr. Romig has also worked on creating smart infusion pump systems, capable of using physiologic and electronic health record data to run complex infusion algorithms, reducing the need for human input, thus improving productivity, while instituting automated double checks to eliminate human error to improve patient safety.
