Julia Berkowitz is a medical student at The Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth and began her studies in the fall of 2015. With the support of The Tenney Fellowship, she will be working with Dr. Glyn Elwyn to develop a standardized index assessing physician attitudes toward shared decision making. This measure will then be used to analyze patterns in physician attitudes across the United States.
Julia received her Bachelor’s degree in Neuroscience from Dartmouth College in 2014 and completed an Honors Thesis addressing the impact of positivity-negativity bias on facial perception and expression.
Prior to beginning medical school, Julia spent a year working on the clinical research team of Partners in Health in Boston and at Boston Healthcare for the Homeless.
