Dr. Victor Joe graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from the University of California, Los Angeles and his medical degree from Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine (Richmond, VA). He completed general surgery residency at Loma Linda University Medical Center (Loma Linda, CA) and a fellowship in surgical critical care at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis. He is currently a Clinical Professor of Surgery in the Division of Trauma, Burns, Critical Care and Acute Care Surgery within the Department of Surgery at the University of California, Irvine School of Medicine and UCI Health. His roles there include serving as the director for the burn program, Vice Chair of Quality for the Department of Surgery, and Secretary of the Medical Staff. Dr. Joe began his career primarily as a trauma/critical care/acute care surgeon with experience in the care of both acute and chronic wounds. Over the past 15 years, his clinical and research interests have focused on the care of patients with burn injuries. This transition occurred as he discovered the truly collaborative, inter-disciplinary nature of the burn team as well as the privilege of caring for patients and their families throughout the continuum of care from acute hospitalization to rehabilitation and beyond (psychosocial health and social re-integration). He seeks to bring this same inter-disciplinary approach to patients with chronic and complex wounds. Most recently, Dr. Joe graduated from the UCI Paul Merage School of Business with an MBA with special immersion in Healthcare Leadership, Healthcare Management and Policy, and Digital Transformation. He is an active member of several societies including the Association for the Advancement of Wound Care (AAWC), the American Burn Association (ABA), and the Society of Critical Care Medicine (SCCM).
