Alexis del Vecchio


Alexis is a PGY1 Emergency Medicine Resident at Mayo Clinic. He graduated from the University of South Carolina - Greenville School of Medicine, and  Yale University where he studied Film and Drama. Originally from Montreal and a professional actor, he created a unique curriculum that teaches acting to emergency medicine physicians to improve their communication and interpersonal skills with patients, which project has been presented nationally and internationally at conferences that include the annual SAEM and ACEP meetings, and AAEM's MEMC conference in Dubrovnik, Croatia. This research has been awarded financial support, notably the Alpha Omega Alpha Carolyn L. Kuckein Fellowship and an SAEM Research Foundation Grant. In his free time, Alexis enjoys traveling to Paris where his significant other has lived for the last five years, walking his adorable basset hound Debbie, downslope skying, and discovering the great outdoors in beautiful Rochester, Minnesota. @TheActorDoctor
