Daniel S. Reuland, MD MPH, is a Clinical Professor of Medicine at the University of North Carolina in the Division of General Internal Medicine and Clinical Epidemiology. He attended medical school at Johns Hopkins University and did his internal medicine residency at Yale – New Haven Hospital. He practiced and taught internal medicine for 11 years (including 4 years with the US Indian Health Service) before deciding to focus on research and enter a post-doctoral fellowship at the UNC Cecil G. Sheps Center for Health Services Research. He completed the fellowship and MPH degree at the UNC School of Public Health in 2008 after which he rejoined the UNC faculty as a health services researcher. His research interests include developing, testing, and implementing interventions aimed at improving clinical communication, decision making, and health behaviors within primary care practice and health systems. Much of his work aims to enhance our understanding of how to make cancer screening more appropriate and patient-centered.
Cross-cutting thematic interests include the adaptation of health communication interventions for Hispanic populations and shared medical decision making. His primary areas of inquiry are now in cancer prevention and control, though he collaborates on studies in other disease areas. He is currently PI of a multi-site, clinical trial funded by an American Cancer Society Research Scholar Grant testing a colorectal cancer screening intervention in safety net care settings in North Carolina and New Mexico. He recently led a multi-disciplinary effort to develop policies, processes, and tools needed for appropriate implementation of lung cancer screening within the UNC Health Care System, and he is PI on intramural (pilot) research grants to develop and test lung cancer screening decision support tools. Dr. Reuland was recently appointed Director of the Carolina Cancer Screening Initiative, supported by the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center and University Cancer Research Fund, which focuses on improving the delivery of evidence-based cancer screening in North Carolina. He also serves as Director of Expanding Networks for Latinos through Community Engagement within the North Carolina Translational and Clinical Sciences Institute.
Dr. Reuland holds appointments in the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Care Center – Cancer Prevention and Control Program, Cecil G. Sheps Center for Health Services Research, and the North Carolina Translational and Clinical Sciences Institute.
