Benjamin P. Geisler, M.D., M.P.H., F.A.C.P., M.R.C.P. (London), F.H.M. is a board-certified internist who practices hospital medicine. He is an international medical graduate and completed a categorical internal medicine residency. Prior to clinical training, Ben was a Post-doctoral Research Fellow in decision science and also completed a Master's degree in Public Health.
Ben is particularly interested in cardiovascular diseases and their prevention, antimicrobial prescribing, rare diseases and diagnostic dilemmas across medical sub-specialties.
He is also a health services researcher, decision-analytic modeler, and health economist. His main position is Senior Consultant at Wing Tech Inc. in the U.S. where he has worked since 2009. Wing Tech Inc. is a management and technology consulting firm applying cutting-edge decision theory and advanced systems analysis and risk management techniques to help its clients identify, quantify, and manage their risks and opportunities.
Ben has served as a co-editor of a peer-reviewed journal in those fields, Value in Health, for eight years and is currently on the editorial boards of Pharmacoeconomics and PLOS One. His research had applications across medical conditions although most were in cardiovascular disease. Ben enjoys teaching as well as running quality improvement/patient safety (QI/PS) projects. Recently, Ben has become interested in "big data" and how to use routinely collected health information for research and QI/PS. He has therefore joined a medical informatics research group at Ludwig-Maximilian University Munich in Germany.
Ben's ultimate career goal is to be an active citizen in the academic hospital medicine and outcomes research communities.
