Dr. Thomas Radomski Named the Assistant Director of the Institute for Clinical Research Education

Dr. Radomski is an Assistant Professor of Medicine and Clinical & Translational Science within the Division of General Internal Medicine. As a practicing general internist and health services researcher, Dr. Radomski’s primary interest is in healthcare value. Specifically, his work focuses on the development of patient-centered approaches to accurately measure and ultimately reduce the delivery of low-value care and how the fragmentation of care across healthcare systems influences health service utilization, outcomes, and value. He is supported by a K23 Career Development Award from the National Institute on Aging to develop, validate, and apply a claims-based metric of low-value prescribing in older adults, and is also leading a major VA study to evaluate the use and cost of low-value health services by Veterans in VA and non-VA care settings. His research has been published in journals such as JAMA, the Annals of Internal Medicine, and the Journal of the American Geriatric Society, and most recently he was the recipient of the Award for Excellent in Clinician Investigation from the Society of General Internal Medicine Mid-Atlantic Region.

In the past two years, Dr. Radomski has served as the Director of Academic Programs in Clinical Research for the ICRE. In this role, he has led our master’s degree and certificate programs through the pandemic – overseeing their transition to a largely online format and facilitating the development of new tracks and coursework in Implementation and Data Science. He also co-directs a course on strategic leadership in academic medicine. In his new role, he will spearhead new ICRE-wide initiatives, ensure the ICRE achieves its strategic goals, and provide oversight of operational management, in addition to continuing to oversee clinical research programs.

He is a graduate of the Penn State College of Medicine and completed his Internal Medicine Residency, Chief Resident Year, and General Internal Medicine Fellowship in Clinical Research at the University of Pittsburgh and UPMC. He is also an alumnus of the ICRE, having earned his Master of Science degree in Clinical Research in 2016 and was a KL2 Scholar.
