Daniel Dohan, Ph.D., is Professor of Health Policy and Social Medicine at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF) where he studies the culture of medicine. His current ethnographic work examines ethical aspects of novel neurotechnologies and interventions to improve the culture of surgical care for frail adults. Dan’s primary UCSF appointment is at the Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies where he heads the Medical Cultures Lab and serves as Deputy Director and Training Director. He also holds a faculty appointment in the UCSF Department of Anthropology, History, and Social Medicine. Dan received his Ph.D. in sociology at UC Berkeley, and UC Press punished his dissertation as The Price of Poverty: Money, Work, and Culture in the Mexican-American Barrio. He received his AB (sociology) from Harvard College, where Professor Mary-Jo Delvecchio Good supervised his senior honors thesis on physicians’ understandings of medical malpractice. At DGHSM, he is working on a manuscript that examines the cultural dynamics of healing, discovery, and profit in contemporary cancer care.
