Michael Wilson, M.D., PI of the OHDR 2016 Pilot Awarded project “Disparities in Decision Making and Medical Care at the End of Life in the Intensive Care Unit: A Pilot Study,” has been named one of four Mayo Clinic 2016 Kern Scholars. The Robert D. and Patricia E. Kern Center for the Science of Health Care Delivery’s Scholars Program trains clinicians to use tools from applied sciences, such as epidemiology, statistics, economics, and sociology, to rigorously assess and improve patient-centered outcomes and health care delivery systems. Dr. Wilson, whose research focus is end-of-life decision making in the ICU and who will begin his program in July, is mentored by health disparities researchers Jon Tilburt, M.D., Victor Montori, M.D., and Ognjen Gajic, M.D. The three other Kern Scholars are W. Oliver Tobin, M.B., B.Ch., BOA, Ph.D. (Neurology), Elizabeth Lorenz, M.D. (Nephrology and Hypertension), and Rahma Warsame, M.D. (Hematology and Oncology). Congratulations, to all!
