Dr. Tom Forsberg graduated from the University at Buffalo School of Medicine in 2006. He completed his residency in emergency medicine at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center in 2009. He has been in partnership with Centra Health by providing emergency medical care within its emergency departments throughout Central and Southside Virginia ever since.

He continues to invest in the professional development of medical students, PA students, and PA fellows by providing formal teaching on the topics of emergency medicine. 

Forsberg is passionate about delivering evidence-based medicine while utilizing technological interfaces to achieve optimal patient care. He can often be found sharing his medical expertise in numerous forums and lectures which he has taken internationally to teach airway management clinics throughout Vietnam. 

On his first visit to Vietnam in 2013, Dr. Forsberg lectured at two hospitals in Ho Chi Minh City. He returned in late 2014 to offer a medical seminar alongside Dr. Chad Hoyt at Hoan My SaiGon Hospital. During this visit, he was impassioned by the need for cardiac surgeries, as well as the great impact made in the lives of the children and families who benefit from financial assistance. Passion led to action and Healing Hearts Vietnam was formed the following year.
