Dr. Shufeldt has been practicing emergency medicine since 1986. However, his professional and personal identity extends far beyond the typical role of a doctor. He is a serial entrepreneur, having founded the largest privately held urgent care group in the US, and after selling in 2010, he created MeMD, an on-demand healthcare service that connects patients with medical providers who can diagnose issues and write prescriptions through a secure video visit. He is a lawyer, entrepreneur, professional pilot, a speaker, SWAT team doctor, and author. Dr. Shufeldt has started his own law firm as well as a publishing company among many other endeavors.
He is an adjunct law professor at the ASU Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law and has taught courses for the W.P. Carey School of Business, MBA and Health Sector Management program.
Lastly, and perhaps his most admirable occupation, he is a self proclaimed “serial learner”, acquiring a new degree every 10 years since his medical degree. After earning a BA from Drake University, and MD from Rosalind Franklin University, he earned his MBA from the W.P. Carey School of Business, and his law degree from the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law at ASU. Most recently, Dr. Shufeldt received his Six Sigma Black Belt from the Fulton School of Engineering to learn more about LEAN process and sharpen his project management skills. He is a proud member of the Sun Devil Community.
Dr. Shufeldt is thrilled to be giving a talk for TEDxASU titled, “The Question We Need to Stop Asking Our Children,” which will help force us all to look ahead when it comes to our professional and personal goals.
