A seasoned anesthesiologist, Dr. Scott is the Division Chief of Critical Care Medicine and the Medical Director of Penn ELERT Tele-Medicine at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, where he is also a Professor of Anesthesiology and Critical Care. He specializes in opioid-sparing anesthesia & perioperative medicine, and has extensive background in perioperative surgical outcome quality improvement and implementation science, working in five countries with different health systems.

With a broad educational background, he received his medical degree from Birmingham University Medical School and completed his residency in anesthesiology at various hospitals in the UK, including Birmingham City Hospital, Frenchay Hospital, and Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham. He also completed a fellowship at the Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children.
