Abraham Verghese, MD, MACP
Linda R. Meier and Joan F. Lane Provostial Professor
Current Research and Scholarly Interests My interest is in clinical skills and the bedside exam, both in its technical aspects, but also in the importance of the ritual and what is conveyed by the physician's presence and technique at the bedside. This work interests me from an educational point of view, and also from the point of view of ethnographic studies related to rituals and how they transform the patient-physician relationship. Recently we have become interested in medical error as a result of oversights in the bedside exam.

Current Research and Scholarly Interests My interests lie at the interface of medicine and technology, engineering new wearable and implantable technologies for earlier cancer detection and continuous monitoring. I am particularly interested in moving promising diagnostic technologies past the proof-of-concept phase and into the clinic.
