Michigan State University College of Human MedicineDr. Brown is the founding chair of the Department of Emergency Medicine at the Michigan State University College of Human Medicine. After graduating from medical school in 1986, he completed his EM residency training at Butterworth Hospital where he subsequently joined the faculty. It was during this period when he developed a passion for summarizing evidence in a form that is useful to clinicians. This interest led to a MSc degree in Epidemiology with a focus on evidence synthesis (i.e., meta-analysis). Dr. Brown serves as Senior Editor for two Cochrane Networks: Acute and Emergency Care and Circulation and Breathing. He also serves as immediate past president of the Association of Academic Chairs of Emergency Medicine.
