Andrew Brown

I am a Clinical Fellow at the University Health Network (UHN), University of Toronto. My areas of clinical medicine are medical imaging and interventional radiology. My areas of research interest are the application of machine learning in radiology and business analytics in healthcare. My recent work has focused on applying machine learning to quality and safety challenges in medical imaging. I completed my MBA at MIT with a focus on on data science and healthcare management. I received my MD from the University of Toronto and my BSc in Biochemistry and Biomedical Sciences from McMaster University.
