Dr. Collins serves as Assistant Professor of Professional Practice in the Texas Christian University School of Nurse Anesthesia and maintains an active clinical practice in the Fort Worth area. He has over 17 years of independent nurse anesthesia experience, with most of that time spent in a high-acuity, high-volume obstetric practice. Greg is a veteran of the US Army Reserves, providing down-range anesthesia in support of both Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation New Dawn.  During his combat-deployment in 2008, Dr. Collins was first exposed to the use of ultrasound for assessments and procedures. This exposure lit a passion for USGRA/POCUS that still burns bright and is routinely transferred onto the learners with whom he currently interacts
