Biography:
Dr. Mulley is Director of the Dartmouth Center for Health Care Delivery Science. He was previously the founding Chief of the General Medicine Division at Massachusetts General Hospital and Associate Professor of Medicine and Health Policy at Harvard Medical School. He graduated from Dartmouth College and was awarded doctor of medicine and master in public policy degrees from Harvard before training in internal Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital. Dr. Mulley's research has focused on the use of decision theory and outcomes research to distinguish between warranted and unwarranted variations in clinical practice leading to development of shared decision-making programs to support clinicians and patients in improving decision quality. The approach has been shown to decrease utilization of high cost medical and surgical interventions while improving measures of process and outcome. This work has influenced the agendas of many public and private organizations engaged in clinical care as well as medical research and education in North America, Europe and Asia.
