Bio

Erin McDonough, MD, is a board-certified Emergency Physician and a UCNS-certified Neuro-Intensivist.  She has been a part of the UC Neuroscience Institute since 2004, and is also a member of the University of Cincinnati Stroke Team.  She is currently an Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine and Assistant Residency Director for the Department of Emergency Medicine.

She is a Cincinnati native who was drawn back to Cincinnati after medical due to the strong national reputation of UC's Emergency Medicine Residency Program.  She continued her medical training in UC Health's Neurocritical Care and Neurovascular Emergencies fellowship program, which was the first in the country to train Emergency Physicians.  Due to the fantastic training and education she has received during her time at UC, she has spent a significant portion of her early career dedicating time to resident education.
