Dr. Campbell, a sociologist with an expertise in survey science who joined the MIHP in 1996, conducts research relating to physician conflict of interest and professionalism that has attracted attention from peers, health care organizations, and national policymakers.  Dr. Campbell is the Director of Research at MIHP and a Professor at Harvard Medical School. With funding from various organizations, including the Office for Research Integrity in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the National Institutes of Health, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, and the Institute for Medicine as a Profession, he has performed national surveys, gathered information from key decision makers, and developed tools to assess physicians’ professional norms and attitudes.  Dr. Campbell aims to further understanding of how academic-industry relationships affect the process and outcomes of biomedical research; the effects of local health care market competition on the activities and attitudes of medical school faculty; and the impact of data-sharing and withholding on academic science.  He is also investigating the role of organizational culture in promoting patient safety in the inpatient and long term care settings.

Dr. Campbell has published more than 100 articles in peer-reviewed journals, including numerous publications in the New England Journal of Medicine and Journal of the American Medical Association.  He has delivered many invited presentations at national and international professional association meetings, including the American Association of Medical Colleges.  He has served on study sections for the National Institutes of Health and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and has served on an Institute of Medicine committees .
