Michael Brown is founding chair of the Department of Emergency Medicine at the Michigan State University College of Human Medicine. After graduating from medical school in 1986, he completed his emergency medicine residency training at Butterworth Hospital, where he subsequently joined the residency teaching faculty. It was during this period that he developed a passion for summarizing evidence in a form useful to clinicians. This interest led to a MSc degree in Epidemiology with a focus on forms of evidence synthesis including diagnostic test meta-analysis. Over the last decade he has been engaged in guideline development related to acute care.
