Congratulations Brian Clyne, M.D., on his new position as interim Physician-in-Chief for Emergency Medicine at Lifespan and interim Chair of the Department of Emergency Medicine at the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University. A student in the Brown Executive Master of Healthcare Leadership (EMHL) 2018 cohort, Dr. Clyne will serve as interim president of University Emergency Medicine Foundation and assume duties on the board of Brown Physicians, Inc. and other leadership positions as required.

I am grateful for the opportunity to serve as interim chair during this important time for the Brown Department of Emergency Medicine, said Dr. Clyne. It will be an exciting challenge and learning opportunity, and an experience that will draw upon the knowledge and skills I’ve gained through the Brown EMHL program.

A Rhode Island native, Dr. Clyne earned his B.A. in psychology at the College of the Holy Cross and his medical degree from Brown. He completed an emergency medicine residency at the University of Maryland Medical School’s Shock Trauma Center. He then returned to Rhode Island and has since practiced at The Miriam Hospital, Rhode Island Hospital and its Hasbro Children’s Hospital for the past 17 years. He also served as a clinical educator at Brown, where he is an associate professor of Emergency Medicine and Medical Science. He previously served as residency director for Lifespan Emergency Medicine.

Dr. Clyne has contributed immensely to clinical and research practice at Lifespan hospitals. He is also passionate about medical student career development, shaping the training programs and resources available to aspiring emergency physicians.

“We would like to extend a hearty congratulations to Dr. Clyne on this impressive achievement,” said EMHL Program Director Scott Goodspeed. “We are proud to have Dr. Clyne as a member of our EMHL community as we work together to transform healthcare.”
