2020 Medical Education Department Chair Award: Granted to a department chair or division chief who has promoted student development and exemplifies the spirit of medical education
In order to prove a novel diagnostic tool actually has a meaningful impact on patient care, one must demonstrate its effectiveness with scientific evidence. While praising a tool’s usefulness with anecdotal cases may get the portable imaging revolution off the ground, ultimately it is well-designed prospective trials outlining its superiority over other more conventional clinical approaches that will ultimately change how doctors practice. This has been my focus for 20 years in portable ultrasound performed at the point-of-care.
A professor and chair of emergency medicine and current director of ultrasound in medical education, Dr. Fox’s clinical research interests lie in emergency ultrasound. He is dedicated to promulgating the use of ultrasound at the point-of-care through research, teaching, leadership and clinical expertise, mirroring UCI's mantra, Discover, Teach, Heal.
Through two consecutive grants from the UniHealth Foundation totaling $1.38M, Dr. Fox developed and published a unique four-year integrated point-of-care ultrasound curriculum for UCI medical students that we use to this day. Through his efforts, UCI was the second medical school in the United States to integrate ultrasound into medical education. The curriculum he developed has been emulated and repurposed at over thirty medical schools throughout the nation.
In addition, Dr. Fox has published over 100 peer-reviewed papers and contributed to three textbooks, two of them as sole editor. He has been invited to lecture more than 450 times in 49 states and 15 countries, including a TEDx UCI talk titled, “The Point of Care Revolution; Ultrasound,” which he gave in 2015. It has been watched nearly 30,000 times.
Dr. Fox earned his MD from Tufts University School of Medicine. He did his residency in emergency medicine at UCI. He also completed a fellowship at the University of Illinois at Chicago in emergency ultrasound.
Dr. Fox serves on the board of directors for both the Society of Ultrasound in Medical Education and the Catalina Island Medical Center.
Dr. Fox joined UCI School of Medicine in 2001. Prior to his role in the Department of Emergency Medicine, he served as assistant dean for Students Affairs at the UCI School of Medicine, and as Director of the ultrasound fellowship in emergency medicine. He became the Chair of Emergency Medicine in 2019.
