John Stull is interested in the epistemic aspects of teaching, particularly how the fundamentals of medicine and public health effectively challenge each other and productively live together in the students we train. He serves as director of the M.D./M.P.H. Program, which admits six to seven first-year medical students into a quasi-integrated curriculum where students complete the requirements for an M.D. and a master of public health in epidemiology.
Stull also is program director of the School of Public Health’s Preventive Medicine Residency, a program that has trained a number of physicians currently who are local and state public health leaders in Oregon and Washington.
Stull teaches introductory epidemiology in the M.P.H. and M.D./MP.H. programs and co-teaches an advanced epidemiology course on using epidemiology to develop causal inferences.
Stull practiced full-time general pediatrics until 1996 when he left practice to obtain his M.P.H. at the Harvard School of Public Health.
