Professor of Emergency Medicine NEOMED Rootstown Ohio
Emergency Department Western Reserve Hospital Cuyahoga Falls Ohio
A graduate of Case Western Reserve (BA), Cleveland State (MS), and NEOMED (MD), Dr. Mencl has been an emergency physician for more than 25 years. After completing his residency in EM at Akron City Hospital (Summa Health System), he stayed on, eventually becoming the system EMS Medical Director. In this leadership position, he assisted the hospital in acquiring and maintaining a variety of certifications and accreditations including level 1 trauma center, STEMI and chest pain, as well as stroke center. He also revamped numerous EMS protocols and introduced many area firsts.
Dr. Mencl’s passions include teaching and research. He is professor of Emergency Medicine at NEOMED, lectures nationally and internationally, and is on the editorial board of Prehospital Emergency Care. He has translated research into practice using some of his published work to develop best practices for his EMS agencies and helped Summa’s STEMI program achieve significant savings in time-to-intervention.
Under his direction, the EMS curriculum for the residents and EMS continuing education for the EMTs and paramedics was revamped moving to more hands-on, case-based, and simulation training, even going out for an overnight training at the local national park. From 2004-2006 Dr. Mencl took a sabbatical to serve as the program director of a new EM residency at the OLVG hospital in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, thus gaining additional insight into different health care systems.
After leaving Summa Health System, Dr. Mencl continues to work in the ED but has also done wound and worked in a Subaxone clinic. He is now board certified in EMS and continues to serve on several area, state, and national committees while teaching whenever possible.

Puerto Costa Maya, Mexico - Exploring the dense tropical vegetation and wide sandy bays of the Costa Maya, it's easy to imagine the days when sacrifice and slavery, rite and ritual were rampant in the Mayan culture. Even today, the countless ruins of temple walls, stairs and secret pathways exude magic and mystery. And when your archaeology lesson is complete, glorious stretches of coral sand may inspire you to build your own empire-of sand castles, of course!
Cozumel, Mexico - The Conquistadors first saw Mexico from the shores of Cozumel while searching for gold. Today, visitors to the island continue to seek out gold and silver jewelry in the shops of San Miguel while having a great time in its many local bars and restaurants. Plus, the waters around Cozumel's sheltered coral reefs make this one of the best snorkeling areas in the world.
