shannon[1]Richard P. Shannon, MD, is the Frank Wister Thomas Professor of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and Chairman of the Department of Medicine. Although he was trained as a traditional academic cardiologist, Dr. Shannon is now best known for his pioneering work in reducing health care–associated infections, first at Allegheny General Hospital and now at Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. Since he is one of the first chairs of a major academic department whose career has focused on quality and safety improvement, we asked him to speak with us about safety in academic medical centers.
