I am an infectious diseases physician, clinical ethicist, medical educator, clinical investigator, and writer.


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, I see patients with HIV and other infectious diseases, and I enjoy teaching medical students and other learners.

Here are my academic publications, and this is my CV (from 11/21/2018). Check out my stories in the New York Times (here, here, here and here), The AtlanticScientific American, and TheBodyPro, as well as The Conversation.
