Dr Karfunkle is an Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine at McGovern Medical School where he completed a year of post graduate training in Clinical Ultrasound. Dr Gordon has threatened to prolong his fellowship for up to 5 years if publications are not forthcoming, so please send help. Dr Karfunkle was not always a doctor. In past lives he was an actuary, prep cook, Russian ne’er-do-well, and karaoke host. He still enjoys programming, video games, cycling, and nerding out over cinema when not chasing his one year old child.
