Daniel Brandt Vegas is a Clinician Educator in the Department of Medicine at McMaster University. He received his MHPE from the University of Illinois at Chicago, and is currently focused on developing a novel program evaluation strategy for post-graduate medical education programs to increase the amount and quality of data gathered and enable advanced analyses to inform goal focused, achievable program specific strategic plans. He is the deputy program director for the Clinician Educator AFC diploma program at McMaster University. His other interests are systems improvement, end of life care, and clinical reasoning. Daniel is mainly focused on the interface between clinical practice and medical education scholarship, and the tension that exists between the pressing urgency of the clinical world and the growing body of science in different areas of medical education. Daniel’s role as a Clinician Educator, and world view in general, are largely informed by his erratic background in life, making his way from his native Venezuela, eventually zig-zagging up to McMaster. Daniel strongly believes in language, in a broad sense. This is often the source of arguments, but also many interesting conversations.
