Dr. Walker completed undergraduate education at Washington & Jefferson College, before obtaining his MD from West Virginia University in 2001.  He trained in a combined Internal Medicine and Pediatrics residency at the Medical College of Virginia/Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center, including a year as a chief resident in Medicine/Pediatrics.  After his chief residency, he moved to the University of Rochester for clinical and research fellowship training in Pulmonary & Critical Care Medicine from 2005-2008.  After three years as Assistant Professor at West Virginia University, he was recruited to Emory University in 2011 by Dr. David Guidot to head the Emory Adult Cystic Fibrosis Program, one of the largest adult CF clinics in the country.  In addition to this, he is actively involved in committees with the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation on a national level.  He remains board-certified in internal medicine, pediatrics, adult pulmonary disease, and adult critical care medicine. 

Dr. Walker’s research primarily involves participating in multi-center observational and interventional trials for cystic fibrosis patients.  He sees both cystic fibrosis and general pulmonary patients at the Emory Clinic, as well as attends in the medical ICU at Emory University.  He also supervises students, residents and fellows at these sites.
