David Rosenthal, MD, assistant professor of medicine (general medicine), was recently elected as a fellow of the Aspen Institute Health Innovators fellowship.
The Health Innovators fellowship is a two-year fellowship aimed at helping leaders “strengthen their leadership and challenge them to develop new approaches to improve the health and wellbeing of Americans.” Rosenthal is one of 21 health providers across the United States selected for the fellowship for 2022, part of the sixth class of fellows.
“I’m honored to join these esteemed health care leaders. In many ways, being selected for this fellowship speaks to the countless people I’ve worked with professionally throughout the years–from Yale students, residents and fellows, colleagues, and even startup engineers, designers, entrepreneurs, social workers, and investors,” said Rosenthal. “All these individuals who push the status quo and see tremendous opportunity for improvement in products, services, systems, technology and culture.”
Rosenthal served as the medical director of the Homeless Patient Aligned Care Team (H-PACT) at the VA Connecticut Healthcare System (VACHS) from 2012-2020. From 2020-2021, he was Chief Medical Officer of Tesseract Heath and Liminal Sciences, 4Catalyzer companies. Rosenthal most recently rejoined the Department of Internal Medicine in the Section of General Internal Medicine as assistant professor of medicine.
