Michaela A. Dinan, PhD

Adjunct Assistant Professor
Department of Health Policy and Management


As Assistant Professor in the Department of Population Health Sciences at Duke University School of Medicine, I examine the transformation of medical practice by emerging technologies, including the factors, barriers and tipping points associated with their adoption or non-adoption. My research primarily involves the use of nationally representative, longitudinal data to examine the trends in the evaluation and management of cancer, associated outcomes, and costs.
