Faculty & Staff

TDI's faculty includes physicians, epidemiologists, psychologists, sociologists, economists, medical geographers, statisticians, and other specialists. They are researchers, educators, mentors, and practicing health professionals. Their primary concerns are studying and improving health care and health care delivery, and training the next generation of leaders in those fields.  Use the course catalog to identify the faculty who teach individual courses and look them up in the faculty directory
