Dr. Brock Daniels

Hometown:

Carbondale, PA

Undergraduate Institution:

Boston College

Medical School:

Northwestern University

Hobbies/Interest:

Anything outside, especially rock climbing, biking, kayaking. Traveling just about anywhere.  Eating suspicious food from street vendors while sitting on a little plastic stool. Cooking for other people.

Past life:

I lived in Thailand for one year as a Fogarty International Clinical Research Scholar and traveled throughout much of Southeast Asia.  I have an MPH from Boston University in Epidemiology and Bioethics. I've also worked in a genetics lab, an HIV clinic, taught the MCAT, cell biology and algebra to high school kids. 

Academic Interest:

My interests are ultrasound, international health, and hopefully the combination of the two.  I'm currently working with Dr. Moore on developing a clinical decision rule to reduce CT scans in patients with suspected renal colic. 

Favorite activities in New Haven:

Koffee is a great place to hang out.  I also like the train station (not for hanging out, but for taking the train).

Why Yale’s Emergency Medicine Program:

YNHH has a largely unique clinical environment; it has the feel of a county hospital with all the resources of a major academic center.  It's an amazing place to train with numerous opportunities for developing whatever type or career you're looking for. Train here, you can work anywhere.

Random factoid:

I was named after a soap opera star on General Hospital.
