Meet Thomas Hindsley
Dr Tom Hindsley is an East Coast transplant, having been born at a young age and raised in the Maryland suburbs of Washington, DC. He studied Physiology and American History at the University of Maryland in College Park, graduating with an Honors certificate in 2004. He spent the next few years earning a Master’s in Physiology at Georgetown University, but it was his experience as a scribe in a community Emergency Department that sealed his fate. He went to medical school in Norfolk, Virginia, where he had the opportunity to study in a well-regarded academic trauma center and fine Naval and Veterans Administration hospitals. Dr Hindsley was fortunate enough to match into an excellent Emergency training program at the University of Missouri – Kansas City, and elected to stay on as a member of the faculty upon graduating in 2014. He is currently faculty supervisor for the ACLS course for UMKC students, as well as faculty sponsor for the Wilderness Medicine Interest Group. He currently resides in Kansas City, MO, with his KC-native wife Krista and sons Luke and Jesse. In his spare time, he enjoys backpacking, cycling, and Civil War living history.
