MD/PhD Candidate, Emory University

Howard Chiou is an MD-PhD candidate in anthropology at Emory University.

As a cultural anthropologist and a medical student, Howard has been embedded on hospital units as they implement new forms of rounding with doctors and nurses that include patients to make decisions together.

His research focuses on improving our understanding of how culture change occurs within hospital units, both to further anthropological understandings of medicine’s shift towards team-based models of care, as well as the science behind implementing changes to improve patient safety.

Howard’s research is supported by AHRQ, NSF, and the Australian Academy of Science. He is also pursuing a career in emergency medicine, and he tweets about anthropology and healthcare at @medXanthro.
