Dr. Jonathan Shaw is a family physician who has dedicated his career to working in the 'safety-net' healthcare systems; his clinical and research passion is improving care for historically under-served patient populations. He is a PCP at Ravenswood Clinic, a Federally Qualified Health Center serving East Palo Alto, and within Stanford promotes the mission of academic-community engagement--previously as the Primary Care division's Director of Community Partnership, now as the Department of Medicine's Associate Chair of Community Partnership.Dr. Shaw received his B.A. in philosophy and worked in health policy before pursuing medical training. During medical school and residency, he obtained significant global health training as a visiting scholar in Mbabane, Eswatini (via the Baylor International Pediatric AIDS Initiative) and a year in rural Guatemala providing maternal & infant care and collaborating with CDC researchers. Since completing his family medicine residency in 2009 he has practiced in community health settings serving primarily immigrant populations, both in Oregon and now East Palo Alto. He moved to the Bay Area in 2011, joining Stanford's Center for Primary Care & Outcomes Research / VA Palo Alto, as a Health Services Research Fellow. His work and evaluation efforts during fellowship included homeless veterans outreach, and leading an interdisciplinary team (ImPACT) improving care coordination for the VA Palo Alto's most medically complex veterans. Dr. Shaw's research home is the Evaluation Sciences Unit which promotes implementation science and leads rigorous evaluation of healthcare redesign both within and outside Stanford Medicine. Over the past decade, his research interests include psycho-social determinants of health, women's health, the impact of health policies on historically marginalized and under-served populations, and research to improve primary care delivery.
