I graduated from the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine in 1995. After that, I completed a residency in emergency medicine from The Ohio State University in 1998. During my residency, I became very active in ultrasound and completed my RDMS certification in 2000.
Besides developing asynchronous learning aids as applications, websites or twitter feeds, I have developed the role of ultrasound in simulation at Ohio State and integrated it into medical student, resident and fellow training. I established an Ultrasound Academy at Ohio State with multiple opportunities for medical students, residents and faculty to learn sonographic techniques in simulated environments and during clinical cases.
Outside of Ohio State, I have been active at the national level serving as the inaugural emergency ultrasound section leader at the AIUM and the first emergency physician to sit on its Board of Governors. I'm the inaugural chair of the AIUM's medical student ultrasound education interest group and champion the integration of ultrasound throughout medical school.
I have also lectured and written multiple papers on ultrasound education, simulation, social media, wireless ultrasound, and shock. I continue to advocate for the safe and early use of ultrasound in the medical encounter and the requisite benefits from the portable focused use of bedside ultrasound.

Consulting and Related Relationships
At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.
As of 11/01/2020, Dr. Bahner has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
