Dulin is a family physician who has been recognized nationally as a leader in the fields of health information technology/advanced analytics, population health, and implementation science. He has led transformative research projects funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, and the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute. His work to implement a centralized health care data/analytics team for Atrium Health, one of the largest nonprofit health systems in the Southeast, was featured as a case study at the Harvard Business School.
Dulin started his career as an electrical engineer, advancing computer chip manufacturing and testing. He then completed doctoral research training where he examined the basic cellular changes that underlie responses to injury, as well as learning and memory. He translated his engineering and research skills to the health care industry, where he focused on enhancing clinical care delivery, improving access to primary care/preventative services, and ameliorating health inequities using technology. He has served in a wide range of leadership roles in academic medicine, health care system administration, public health, and the information technology industry.
Dulin received his BS in electrical and biomedical engineering from the University of Texas at Austin and his PhD and MD from the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston.
