Deepika Mohan, MD, MPH

Dr. Mohan is interested in how doctors make decisions for their patients. Most quality improvement efforts assume that doctors weigh information about the patient, knowledge of best practices, external incentives, and system constraints. Dr. Mohan's own clinical experience as a surgical resident and critical care fellow suggests that other variables influence decision making, particularly under conditions of time-pressure. Mohan uses behavioral science methods, such as signal detection theory, to identify these variables and to design novel interventions that might reduce variability in care.
