He is a clinician educator who emphasizes knowing the patient as a person first, evidence-based diagnosis and comprehensive care for the patients who are most vulnerable.
Brode graduated from Loyola University of Chicago with honors in global health. He completed residency training at the University of Washington in Seattle, then served as the chief resident of global health through the University of Washington in partnership with the University of Nairobi in Naivasha, Kenya. There he taught both American and Kenyan medical trainees and completed multiple quality improvement projects to enhance the standard of care at a rural, low-resource public hospital.
At Dell Med, Brode leads the Therapeutics and Informatics Committee to develop treatment guidelines and operational processes for COVID-19 care with an interdisciplinary focus. Brode is the medical director of the Post-COVID-19 Program at UT Health Austin, specializing in research and clinical care of “long-haulers” who are still experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 after initial infection. He is also working to improve how the medical system identifies patients’ health-related social needs and connects them to resources with community health workers. Brode works with medical students and residents to deliver compassionate, person-centered care for people who are hospitalized or recovering from complex illness.
