    Joel Geerling, MD, PhD, is a clinician-scientist. He is currently a postdoctoral research fellow at Harvard Medical School in the Department of Neurology at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. Additionally, Dr. Geerling is clinically active as a neurologist in BIDMC's division of cognitive & behavioral neurology. Dr. Geerling spends most of his time conducting experiments for NIH-funded neuroscience projects. The remainder of his time is spent seeing patients in a cognitive and behavioral neurology clinic and teaching neuroscience and neurology to medical students, residents, and fellows. In the lab, he uses genetic techniques to isolate and manipulate neurons that mediate basic physiologic functions including sleep, appetite, and thermoregulation. His focus is identifying and testing connections between the brainstem and other regions of the nervous system. He uses developmental-genetic neuroanatomy and Cre-transgenic animal models to identify specific subpopulations of neurons in that control basic physiologic functions. His goal is to improve our understanding and treatment of patients with coma and other disorders of arousal, appetite, and autonomic homeostasis.

After being mobilized to active duty for combat deployment, he decided to return to school in order to continue to make an impact in patient centered care, patient empowerment, and access to care. This led to his continued work in writing about medical education and technology issues for The Lancet and for the Association of American Medical Colleges, in addition to work with several public education and social entrepreneurship programs. He has presented at the national and international level on Health Information Technology and Healthcare Social Media issues. He is a committed “#FMRevolution-ary” and believes in using his unique experience and voice to focus on the creative disruption of healthcare.

    Medical Student at The Commonwealth Medical College Class of 2018
    Hi, I am a first year medical student at The Commonwealth Medical College. I kicked off my entrepreneurial career by fulfilling a need with a fellow MD candidate of mine. Together we created PreMD Tracker, an app for pre-med students to help them stay up to date, on track, and guided throughout the long and complex pre-med process. In addition to helping run the app, I am the student representative to the AAMC for my class, and the Vice Chair of the PA Medical Society, Medical Student Section. My future goals are to design products to help educate and empower patients as they take on a increasingly larger role in their care, effectively and positively disrupt the medical field with the creative utilization of newer, cheaper, and more effective medical technology, as well as continue to be an advocate for the implementation of effective doctor patient relationships that work to address both the doctor's and the patient's concerns. Outside of medicine, I like to mountain bike, rock climb, practice Tae Kwon Do, and travel. Always more than happy to connect!
