Prior to joining the department, Dr. Slappy had been affiliated with Emory Johns Creek Hospital since 2008, where he chaired the Education and Cancer committees, was involved with establishing the hospital's Breast Cancer Center, and participated in implementing updated peer review processes and protocols for blood product-use. From 2005-2008, Dr. Slappy held several appointments at the Naval Hospital, Charleston, SC, including Chief of the Medical Staff; Chair, Executive Committee of the Medical Staff; Department Head, General Surgery; and Officer in Charge of the Shipboard Surgical Team.

At Emory, one of Dr. Slappy's primary responsibilities is being one of the faculty attendings of the Acute and Critical Care Surgery service (ACCS) at Emory University Hospital (EUH), which was implemented in 2010 as a quality improvement effort for EUH's Emergency Department (ED) and a new rotation opportunity for general surgery residents of the Emory University School of Medicine. The establishment of the ACCS has provided EUH's ED with a revolving surgical staff of on-site faculty attendings assisted by resident teams.
