      Dan Dohan is Professor of Health Policy and Social Medicine at UCSF, Deputy Director and Training Director of the Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies (IHPS), and co-Director of the UCSF-UC Hastings Consortium on Law, Science and Health Policy (with UC Hastings Professor Jaime King).

      Dan inaugurated the social scientific Medical Cultures Lab (MCL), a multi-disciplinary collection of researchers, educators, and program administrators whose work examines the meanings of health and practices of healing of our contemporary healthcare system.

      In terms of research, MCL specializes in ethnographic studies with clinicians, patients, researchers, and healthcare leaders. We are doing some social science research on how to better understand and measure medical culture and experience, and we also are involved in applied studies to improve healthcare outcomes.

      MCL members are also involved in a variety of educational initiatives.
      - a new MS Degree in Health Policy and Law to be jointly offered by UCSF and UC Hastings College of the Law (launch: fall 2016);
      - development of a new Foundational Sciences course on Health and Society for the UCSF School of Medicine Bridges curriculum;
      - the Philip R. Lee Health Policy Fellowship at IHPS;

      Finally, MCL includes dissemination and advocacy activities to underscore that and how culture matters in medicine. In particular, MCL is building on the recently-concluded EngageUC project (NIH) to develop best practices for patient engagement in the UCSF Precision Medicine initiative.

      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.
