Carl Marincowitz

NIHR Doctoral Research Fellow at the Hull York Medical School, University of Hull

I am a UK Higher Specialty Trainee in Emergency Medicine and began a National Institute for Health Research Doctoral Fellowship at Hull York Medical School in September 2016. I qualified from Robinson College, University of Cambridge Medical School in 2010 and completed Foundation Medical training in the East of England. My primary research interest is the Emergency Department management and risk stratification of head-injured patients.

In 2012 I started training in Emergency Medicine in Yorkshire, completing core training in 2016. I also completed a National Institute for Health Research Academic Clinical Fellowship in Emergency Medicine between 2013-2016, conducting research at Hull Royal Infirmary Emergency Department. I assessed whether patients who present after a delay following head injury have a higher risk for significant brain injuries and was awarded an MSc by Hull York Medical School.

My Doctoral Fellowship involves evaluating the impact of national clinical head injury guidelines used in the UK and attempting to refine these guidelines to improve their cost-effectiveness.
