John W. Scott

Brigham and Women's Hospital

John Scott is in his third year as a Global Health Equity Resident in General Surgery and as the Henry Ellis Warren Research Fellow at the Brigham & Women’s Hospital and CSPH. John is also a Paul Farmer Global Surgery Research Fellow with the HMS Program for Global Surgery and Social Change (PGSSC). After obtaining a Masters Degree in Public Health at the Harvard Chan School of Public Health, John spent his second research year in Rwanda helping create a pre-hospital injury database in collaboration with SAMU, Rwanda’s national pre-hospital ambulance system. He also spent the year developing a curriculum for residents on Non-Technical Skills for Surgeons that integrates unique challenges of LMIC contexts. John also spent a significant amount of time involved with education efforts for residents, students, and para-medical personnel. Domestically, John’s research focuses on disparities in trauma and emergency surgical care and related health policy analysis. Specifically, John is interested in the impact of insurance on patient presentation and patient outcomes in trauma and acute care surgery. John’s work seeks to translate current health policy into a surgically-levant evidence base for surgeons and the patients that they care for. John hopes to apply the skills he has gained through his fellowship at CSPH to a career as an academic surgeon involved in the care of the acutely ill in injured in the US and around the world.
