Dr. Chaudhry is Associate Professor of Medicine (General Internal Medicine) and Director of the Yale Center for Healthcare Innovation, Redesign, and Learning (CHIRAL). She is an alumna of the RWJ Clinical Scholars Program. She is conducting a large-scale observational study, SILVER-AMI, funded by NHLBI, of 3000 older patients with acute myocardial infarction. The goal of this study is to understand how non-traditional risk factors, such as frailty and cognitive impairment, impact outcomes of this population. As Director of the Academic Hospitalist Program, she conducts work to improve the safety and quality of care for hospitalized patients. CHIRAL, supported by AHRQ, is studying care transitions into, within, and out of the hospital setting. In addition, Dr. Chaudhry leads the new Healthcare Innovations track of the National Clinician Scholars Program, which may serve as a “pipeline” program for YSIS.
