David Johnson, MD

Assistant Professor of Urology

I have an academic background in economics, public health, and health services research in addition to being a fellowship-trained urologic oncologist. The topics of my prior research experience and publications include value-based payment models, surgical outcomes, cancer screening, quality, utilization and appropriateness of care, overdiagnosis and overtreatment, and shared decision-making. I am working to systematically transform how specialty healthcare is delivered as Medical Director of Healthcare Strategy and Payment Transformation with the largest commercial payer in North Carolina while also providing clinical care and resident education as a Clinical Assistant Professor of urology at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. My career goal is to transform the healthcare payment and delivery system to drive high quality, affordable healthcare while improving the patient and provider experience.
