Dr. Shoshana Herzig is Associate Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Director of Hospital Medicine Research in the Division of General Medicine and Primary Care Sections of Hospital Medicine and Research at BIDMC. She joined the faculty in 2010 after completing residency and chief residency at BIDMC, a general medicine fellowship through Harvard Medical School, and a Master’s in Public Health Degree at the Harvard School of Public Health.

Her research interests are focused on patterns of medication utilization in the inpatient setting and associated outcomes, with the goal of informing physician decision-making in this realm. Her present work, funded by a K23 Award from the National Institute on Aging and an RO1 from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, aims to improve the care of hospitalized older adults through safer prescribing of sedating medications. She serves as the BIDMC site principal investigator for the Hospital Medicine Research and Reengineering Network (HOMERUN) – a nationwide research organization focused on measuring and improving the outcomes of hospitalized patients – and as Senior Deputy Editor for the Journal of Hospital Medicine.

In addition to her research activities, Dr. Herzig remains clinically active as an academic hospitalist at BIDMC where she cares for patients and teaches residents and Harvard Medical students on the general medicine wards.
