Brian Rice is a Clinical Assistant Professor in the Department of Emergency Medicine at the Stanford University School of Medicine. He is a new member of the Stanford Emergency Medicine International group with a focus on research including applied epidemiology to guide development efforts.
Dr. Rice was granted his MDCM from the McGill University Faculty of Medicine in 2008. He did a preliminary year in Internal Medicine at St. Mary Medical Center in Long Beach, CA followed by the completion of his Emergency Medicine Residency at Los Angeles County + USC, graduating in 2012. After residency, he completed a Fellowship in Global Health and International Emergency Medicine via a combined program at Yale University and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine where he received a MSc in Tropical Medicine and International Health as well as a Diploma in Tropical Medicine and Hygiene in 2014. His first attending job was at NYU/Bellevue where he worked clinically and continued his role as Research Director of Global Emergency Care, a US and Ugandan-based NGO focused on providing “task-shifting” training in emergency medicine for non-physician clinicians in regions that did not have physician services.
His research work has focused on validating task-shifting in emergency medicine by looking at outcomes and quality indicators, as well as applied epidemiological studies attempting to link chief complaints to outcomes in low-resource settings to rationally develop models for care. His clinical interests are focused on fever in the returned traveler and zoonotic infections. He has worked clinically in Thailand, Cambodia, Liberia and Uganda and has been an invited speaker both nationally and internationally for his research work.
