Dr. Marvin Wayne, an attending physician at PeaceHealth St. Joseph Medical Center’s emergency department and the medical program director for Whatcom Emergency Medical Services, has been designated a “Fellow” by the American Heart Association.
Wayne’s fellowship was conferred by the AHA Council on Cardiopulmonary, Critical Care, Perioperative and Resuscitation in November.
Dr. Tom Aufderheide, a colleague of Wayne’s and a professor of emergency medicine at the Medical College of Wisconsin, led the nomination process. Aufderheide said Wayne is exceptionally qualified and has demonstrated significant involvement with the American Heart Association.
“He was an early adopter of Automated External Defibrillation and was one of the first to implement out-of-hospital emergency medical services use of AEDs,” Aufderheide said, in a press release.
Wayne has received multiple honors and achievements through his career.
In 2010, he was given the “Outstanding Contribution in EMS” Award from the American College of Emergency Physicians, and was also named “Physician of Excellence” by the medical staff of PeaceHealth St. Joseph Medical Center.
In addition to being named an AHA Fellow, Wayne is also a Fellow with the American Academy of Emergency Medicine and the American College of Emergency Physicians.
