Dr. Broom specializes in general academic pediatrics, with research interests in medical education, professionalism, health care communication (particularly text messaging), and family-centered mental health screening.

His clinical interests include improving pediatric well-child and behavioral health care through embracing technology and broadening patient/family communication.  His practice at Danis Pediatric Center has led efforts in exploring the use of mobile phone applications (specifically texting) with patients.  He directs Happy Mothers, Healthy Families, a program that offers maternal and family counseling and also utilizes text messaging to increase patient engagement.  

He is dedicated to seeking innovation in medical education and pushes students, residents, and faculty to utilize new tools (text messaging, online curricula, educational gaming, audience-response systems) to improve their learning and individual teaching styles.
