​Dr. Hatten’s academic interests reflect the intersection of his training as an emergency physician, epidemiologist, and medical toxicologist.  He is interested in epidemiology of drug related death, spatial analysis, and the relationship between public policy and health outcomes.  In addition, he is involved in growing multicenter toxicology research through the Toxicology Investigators Consortium (ToxIC) sponsored by the American College of Medical Toxicology. Finally, he is interested in clinical policy/guideline development and was recently reappointed to the American College of Emergency Physicians Clinical Policies Committee.
