Dr. Benjamin Mosher is an Assistant Professor with our department and a board certified trauma and critical care surgeon at Sparrow Hospital’s Level 1 trauma center. He joined us in 2005 after completing medical school and his general surgery residency with MSU and after working for a few years in the private sector. He returned to academia to work more closely with the surgeons that trained him and to work with residents and medical students who challenge him every day to stay current with state-of-the-art surgical care.
He chose a trauma and critical care career because he found taking care of critically ill patients to be very challenging and rewarding. In this role, Dr. Mosher is presented with unique and different opportunities to care for people who experience traumatic events in their lives. He meets the challenges by practicing evidence-based medicine and he is personally rewarded when his patients recover and are happy with their care. He keeps a file of notes and cards from patients expressing their gratitude and their comments are invaluable, reminding him why he entered medicine. Given the intensity of working in this difficult environment every day, Dr. Mosher maintains balance in his life by spending time away from work to be with family and friends. Dr. Mosher is not only strength to his patients; he is also a role model and mentor to so many who work with him. Dr. Mosher is one of the most admired members of our department and we are fortunate to have him as a faculty member.
The Susan G. Komen for the Cure has awarded the Department a grant to our project team to provide breast care to women of mid-Michigan. The team includes Mary Smania, MSN, FNP-BC Dr. Harvey Bumpers, Dr. Karen Ching, Kimberly Anderson, and Katie Honn.
