Commencement Speaker: Thomas M. Krummel

Thomas M. Krummel, M.D., FACS/FAAP
Professor of Cardiothoracic Surgery and Bioengineering and Co-Director at Stanford Byers Center for Biodesign.
Over a 35-year career, Dr. Thomas Krummel has served roles as a busy surgeon, investigator, teacher and innovator. He has served in numerous leadership positions in many of the important surgical societies including the American College of Surgeons (ACS), the American Surgical Association (ASA), the American Board of Surgery (ABS), the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and was the President of the American Pediatric Surgical Association (APSA) for 2013-2014.
Dr. Krummel has lectured throughout the world, is author or co-author of over 300 publications, chapters, abstracts and books and he has mentored over 300 students, residents and post doctoral felllows. He is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Parkside (‘73) and the Medical College of Wisconsin (‘77). Throughout his career, Dr. Krummel has been a medtech pioneer. While just a surgical resident, he formed what was then the world’s second Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) team. The success of that team served as a major impetus to more widespread adoption of this now well-established technique.
Over the last 20 years, Dr. Krummel has been a pioneer in the application of information technology to simulation-based surgical training and surgical robotics. For his work in this area and in surgical robotics, he has received two ComputerWorld Smithsonian Awards. For more than 15 years, he has partnered with Dr. Paul Yock to co-direct the Stanford Byers Center for Biodesign. This program is designed to teach the invention and implementation of new surgical technologies through interdisciplinary research and education at the emerging frontiers of engineering and the biomedical sciences. There are now 18 similar programs on three continents and 215 graduates.
