A 1985 graduate of CCOM, Dr. Sefcik holds the B.S. in pharmacy and M.S. in pharmacology from Butler University, and the M.B.A. from Purdue University. He completed his rotating internship at Westview Hospital in Indianapolis, and his emergency medicine residency at Chicago Osteopathic Hospitals and Medical Centers.
