Peter is a fourth-year medical student at the University of Minnesota and one of the Clinical Innovation Fellows at Primary Care Progress. He recently earned an MPH degree from the University of Minnesota (between his third and fourth year) focused on health policy. His MPH thesis project surveyed MN physician's opinion on the value of public health education, aiming to help medical students make decisions about whether the MPH degree is appropriate for their career aspirations.
Peter is interested in the role primary care physicians play in creating, analyzing, and promoting patient-centered health policies at the state and federal level. (Primarily at the state level.) Peter believes Primary Care Progress' Clinical Innovation Network is the organization's most exciting element and looks forward to helping further its growth and development. On a lighter note, Peter is a fan of ping pong, primary care, old furniture, photography, Minnesota, and The Hold Steady.
