      Daniel Dohan, PhD is Professor of Health Policy and Social Medicine in the Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies (IHPS). He is also Associate Director for Training and Development at IHPS and Director of the UCSF-UC Hastings Consortium on Law, Science and Health Policy (along with Professor of Law David Faigman).

      Dan’s work focuses on the culture of medicine: how it ameliorates and perpetuates societal inequalities; its relationship to science and discovery; and how training creates health professionals.

      His research combines qualitative and quantitative approaches, and he is interested in the development of new methods for combining and depicting mixed approaches. Currently, he is PI of a project examining how patients with advanced disease find out about and decide whether to participate in clinical trials of new cancer drugs, and he is co-leading a UC-wide effort to develop harmonized and community-engaged approaches for biorepository research.

      Dan is active in health policy and social science education through training activities with post-doctoral fellows, residents, and students, including as course director of Qualitative Research Methods offered through the Training in Clinical Research program. He is also working with colleagues at IHPS and at the UC Hastings College of Law to strengthen the relationship between the two schools and to develop a master's degree program in health policy and law.

      Dan received his PhD in sociology from UC Berkeley. A book based on his dissertation, The Price of Poverty: Money, Work, and Culture in the Mexican-American Barrio, was published by the University of California Press in 2003.
