For 13 years I was on faculty at Dartmouth’s Geisel School of Medicine where I was co-investigator for the DAR-901 trial of a promising new vaccine against tuberculosis, Director of Education for the 5 graduate programs of The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice, and chair of the clinical ethics committee at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. I also led two required courses for medical students, co-taught undergraduate Dartmouth College courses with medical anthropologist Sienna Craig, and was honored to receive several teaching awards. 

In September 2018, I joined the University of Vermont Medical Center and the Larner College of Medicine as Professor of Medicine. There I direct the Department of Clinical Ethics, see patients with HIV and other infectious diseases, and enjoy teaching medical students and other learners.

Here are my academic publications, and this is my CV (from 3/24/2019). Check out my stories in the New York Times (here, here, here and here), The AtlanticScientific American, and TheBodyPro, as well as The Conversation.
