Dr. Hauck began her working career as a molecular biologist, earning her PhD in Biology from MIT. After several years as a basic research scientist, Dr. Hauck attended the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic medicine, earning her DO in 2003. After her residency in Anesthesiology at Temple University Hospital, she joined the faculty in the department of Anesthesiology at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University. Since joining the faculty, Dr. Hauck has taken a leadership role in the Preadmission Testing department. In addition, she has taken an active role in research while at Temple, and is now the Associate Vice Chair of Research in her department. Dr. Hauck's research interests include topics related to preoperative evaluation and care of the surgical patient. She is particularly interested in following and creating algorithms for consistent patient evaluation, the use of risk calculators for early identification of the high risk patient and the use of interventions early in the surgical patient pathway for health optimization on day of surgery. Other research interests include identification of patient and surgical risk factors for postoperative respiratory failure after robotic surgery, and identification of risk factors for hyperkalemia in surgical trauma patients requiring massive transfusion.
