Ashley Hink, M.D., MPH will join the division of Acute Care Surgery in September as an assistant professor, upon completion of a fellowship in trauma and surgical critical care at the University of Washington Harborview Medical Center.
Hink received her MPH from Emory, her M.D. from the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University and completed her surgical residency at MUSC. Hink’s clinical focus is in the areas of trauma, critical care, burns and acute care general surgery, but she will also be dedicating time to further develop injury prevention programming at MUSC.
She has a strong interest in firearm injury prevention, and her research focus is aimed on improving the understanding, clinical care, and prevention of violent injuries, and identifying strategies for trauma centers to better respond to and support victims of violence.
