Greetings from Seattle!

I'm Dave, a Family Medicine resident physician at the University of Washington and a former medical analyst here at Bleacher Report. I graduated from the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine in June 2013, and following residency, I plan to pursue fellowship training in Primary Care (non-operative) Sports Medicine. I currently serve as a volunteer team physician for Sammamish High School football in Bellevue, WA and for UW Men's Hockey.

I started analyzing injuries in 2010, and I joined Bleacher Report in 2012. I hung up my sportswriting cleats in late 2014 to further pursue my clinical and research goals, and I very much appreciate having had the opportunity to shed light on injuries as they affect the sports world and teach a little about medicine and anatomy along the way.

    Hey Dave,

    Do you know where Aaron Rodgers went to get his colar bone injury repaired? Who was the doctor?

    Hey Dr. Dave, my name is Dan. My first year of medical school I did a little writting too, on a CBSsports blog. Bleacher Report was in its infancy then, and they approached me about trying to write with them instead. After that first year of school I stopped sports blogging but would love to get into it with more time now. I'm in my last year of school, interview season is done, and I've got 6 months to enjoy now. How'd you get into it?
