Bryan earned his medical degree from the University of South Florida in 2000, then completed a residency at Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C. After receiving his Master of Public Health from George Washington University, he was asked to start the Division of Pediatric Hospital Medicine at the Children’s Hospital of The King’s Daughters in Norfolk. He grew that program from a single-doctor, single-site start-up to a multi-site group employing more than 10 providers. The project required building from scratch a hospitalist-based nursery program at a nearby community hospital and salvaging the only inpatient pediatric rehabilitation unit in Virginia.
For more than a decade, Bryan has taught master’s-level courses in health policy and finance. He has published widely on various health finance topics, including authoring a book chapter on medical economics for the American Academy of Pediatrics in 2017. He has interests in translating complex health policy issues into common lay terminologies; has served on executive-level committees that targeted health benefits design; has presented at regional and national conferences on financial topics; and has been closely involved with strategic planning and organizational negotiations at senior administrative levels.
Most importantly, he is a loving husband to Stephanie and doting father to three awesome children – Lyla, Juliette, and Simon.
