Brendan James Flanagan

Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine
Emergency Medicine


I graduated from UMass Medical School in 2015 and came down to Duke to complete my Emergency Medicine residency. I served as Chief Resident in my last year of residency and graduated from the program in 2018. I stayed on as an Assistant Professor with the Duke Emergency Department where I continue to to practice and teach. My primary academic interests are education and wellness in medicine with a focus on reforming medical education culture to produce healthier, happier and more resilient clinicians. I teach multiple courses for the Duke School of Medicine and serve as an instructor and mentor to current residents.
