As a doctor in the United States Navy, Jagoda completed two tours in the Middle East, first during the Iran-Iraq War, and then again during Desert Storm/Desert Shield.[3] He earned a Navy Achievement Medal for leading a resuscitation augmentation medical team in 1988 and in 1991 received the Navy Commendation Medal for meritorious service on the USNS Comfort. In 1990, he earned the rank of lieutenant commander. He was later made Assistant Professor at the Department of Military Medicine/Emergency Medicine at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, Maryland. He was honorably discharged from the navy in 1991.

He is past chair of the Clinical Policies Committee of the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP), where his work with the committee for 14 years facilitated the evolution from a consensus-based process to an evidence-based process and promoted ACEP’s practice guideline methodology both nationally and internationally.[5] He has organized evidence-based symposiums in Italy, the Netherlands, and Chile and co-organized the first Joint ACEP/Italian Congress on Emergency Medicine (in Torino).
