Faculty Bio

Dr. Lee is a health services researcher with disciplinary background in organizational and medical sociology. The goal of his research is to improve health care delivery through critical examination of factors that drive organizational as well as individual decisions and behaviors. This goal has brought him to focus on a number of pressing issues in health care management and health policy, including hospital closure and merger, mal-distribution of physicians, service integration in substance abuse treatment, social inequalities in health care access and utilization, health literacy and social support, and, more recently, organizational transformation and implementation of evidence-based practices. Dr. Lee’s work has appeared in major health services research and management journals. He has received recognitions from several regional and national associations, notably the Best Pre- and Post-Doctoral Presentation Award from the Association for Health Services Research in 1997, the John D. Thompson Prize for Young Investigators from the Association of University Programs in Health Administration in 2002, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Investigator Awards in Health Policy Research in 2008, and the Medical Care Research & Review Best Paper Award in 2009.
