Zachary J. Jarou, MD, MBA
St. Joseph Hospital
University of Michigan
When he created EMRA Match, Zach Jarou changed the way EM-bound medical students search for residency programs (and now, for clerkships and fellowships). It’s only one way he has demonstrated how to leverage data science to improve this specialty. A prolific leader, Dr. Jarou’s interests include EHR optimization, health information exchange and interoperability, value-based healthcare, operations management, data science, machine learning, and decision modeling.
More than 200 applications were reviewed by the selection committee, comprising Chair Omar Maniya, MD, MBA, with Hannah Hughes, MD, MBA; RJ Sontag, MD; Venkat Subramanyam, MD; Erik Blutinger, MD, MSc; Sophia Spadafore, MD; Karina Sanchez, MD; and Jazmyn Shaw, MS-IV. The selection committee was blinded to EMRA and/or ACEP membership status. Care was taken to ensure both a diverse applicant pool and awardee group.
