Chris Fox, MD, FAIUM, FPD-AEUS, Professor of Emergency medicine at University of California, Irvine
A professor and chair of emergency medicine and current President of the Society of Ultrasound in Medical Education, Dr. Fox’s clinical research interests lie in advanced 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. 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 Student Affairs at the UCI School of Medicine, and as Director of the ultrasound fellowship in emergency medicine and has graduated 40 fellows. He became the Chair of Emergency Medicine in 2019. 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,” watched 34,000 times. 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 fully integrate ultrasound into medical education. The curriculum he developed has been emulated and repurposed at over thirty medical schools.
