Dr. Steinbaum completed additional training, known as a Fellowship in Surgical Critical Care. He initially accepted a position as a Clinical Instructor at the MIEMSS Shock Trauma Center in Maryland. Although he enjoyed the fast pace of the trauma center as well as the diversity, he discovered that he wanted a closer and longer lasting relationship with his patients. He decided to leave the academic world to enter private practice. He chose surgery because he enjoyed the ability to immediately diagnose and resolve problems through surgical intervention.
