In his day job, he is a professor of pediatrics and health services researcher at Indiana University School of Medicine. Among other titles, he is Director of the Center for Health Policy and Professionalism Research. He received his MD from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine in 1998.

He completed an internship and residency in Pediatrics at the University of Washington, where he stayed to complete a health services research fellowship in the Robert Wood Johnson Clinical Scholars Program.
