Domenic (DJ) Corey works at the intersection of clinical medicine, healthcare administration, and provider education.  Founder of Northeastern’s EMT program, he is passionate about preparing upcoming healthcare providers to provide empathic care, grounded in stellar communication and understanding “why.”

A triple-Husky, he models NU’s experiential education through continuing to work locally as a paramedic and promoting mobile-integrated health to expanding inpatient-hospital care to patients remaining in their homes. 

DJ believes successful leaders foster the growth of everyone around them- in the classroom and in the profession.
