    Dr. Auerbach is a widely recognized leader in Hospital Medicine, having authored or co-authored the seminal research describing effects of hospital medicine systems on patient outcomes, costs, and care quality. He leads a 13-hospital research collaborative focused on new discoveries in healthcare delivery models in acute care settings, and continues an active research mentoring program at UCSF.

    Dr. Auerbach's research has been published in prominent journals including the New England Journal of Medicine, JAMA, Annals of Internal Medicine, and Archives of Internal Medicine. He has received the Mack Lipkin Award for Outstanding research as a fellow, and the Western Society for Clinical Investigation Outstanding Investigator, and is a member of the American Society for Clinical Investigation.

    Dr. Auerbach's research goals span the assessment of quality and outcomes of care, quality improvement intervention design/evaluation, particularly in the context of electronic health records, and studies of physician specialties and care systems, especially the hospitalist model. He has recently assembled a hospital consortium entitled the 'Hospital Medicine Reengineering Network" to further these goals on a larger scale and provide support to trainees and physicians seeking to measure their performance. He has been deeply focused on the development of mentees, most recently becoming Core Faculty for UCSF's Clinical Informatics Fellowship.

    Project opportunities include studies of determinants of medical error, large-scale evaluation of quality measurement programs, development and evaluation of healthcare improvement interventions, and innovative implementation models.
