Dr. Fox is a clinician-educator whose clinical practice is based in the Duke Pediatric Emergency Department.  His educational efforts are directed at learners across the medical education spectrum: from medical, nurse practitioner, and physician assistant students to residents/fellow to experienced clinicians.  In addition to teaching about clinical entities he commonly encounters on a day-to-day basis in the Pediatric emergency department, Dr. Fox has special interests in clinical decision-making (specifically the transition from novice to expert thinking), diagnostic errors, and evidence-based clinical practice.  

Dr. Fox enjoys delivering interactive teaching sessions on these topics and looks to collaborate with others interested in these topics as well.

Dr. Fox is one of the co-directors of the annual Teaching and Leading EBM: A Workshop for Educators and Champions of Evidence-Based Medicine.
