About Robert Bassett

After shockingly not getting drafted by the NBA, this Division III All-Star graduated Brandeis University and decided to go “PRO” in medicine. Following four amazing years at PCOM, Dr. Bassett served a residency in Emergency Medicine at the Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis.

After residency, then Captain Bassett began his service as an active duty medical officer in the United States Army. He served one tour of duty in Baghdad, Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom and received several Army Commendation medals.

After completing his military commitment he fulfilled another sacred oath (to his wife): to settle back in Philadelphia. Dr. Bassett then completed a medical toxicology fellowship at Einstein Medical Center.

Most recently Dr. Bassett has served as core faculty in the Emergency Medicine Residencies at Einstein Medical Center and Kennedy Health/Rowan School of Osteopathic Medicine. Dr. Bassett also has an active medical toxicology practice and is a consultant with Philadelphia Poison Control/Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

When not pontificating over emergency medicine/toxicology, Dr. Bassett treasures his time with his wife Blair Hontz (D.O. '07), son Graham, and their two boxer pups.
