Division Director, Pediatric Emergency Medicine

Scott Russell received his medical degree from the Medical College of Georgia in 2002. He completed his pediatric residency (2005) and pediatric emergency medicine fellowship (2008) at the University of Alabama-Birmingham. He began his career at the Medical University of South Carolina in 2008 as an assistant professor of Pediatrics. He served as the Pediatric Emergency Medicine Medical Director from 2011 until 2018 and has been the Division Chief of Emergency Medicine since 2016. He currently serves as an Associate CMO, Children's Health, the Vice Chair, Clinical Operations, Department of Pediatrics and the Senior Medical Director of Shawn Jenkins Children's Hospital.
