Luke Messac, MD, PhD
PGY4, Rhode Island Hospital & Brown EM Residency
From his work in rural Malawi to the halls of Harvard, Luke Messac has kept a steady eye on his goal: bringing quality care to every patient. As a physician-historian trained in the University of Pennsylvania’s MD/PhD program, Dr. Messac studies the causes and consequences of scarcity in health care delivery. At a time when virtually all of our clinical environments are affected by shortages of staff, space, and supplies, his work helps us understand where scarcity comes from, and how to address it.
