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.
