    Collapse overview


    Roger Luckmann, MD, MPH, Associate Professor of Family Medicine and Community Health, has extensive research experience developing and managing a wide variety of research projects including surveys of the public (e.g., mammography utilization), surveys of physicians (e.g., the content of the routine periodic health evaluation of adults), analyses of large health care databases (e.g., hospital discharge data on the epidemiology of appendicitis) and cohort studies of chronic disease (e.g., Alzheimer's disease). He has recent and ongoing experience in the design and implementation of studies of the delivery of clinical preventive services such as mammograms and flexible sigmoidoscopy. Dr. Luckmann collaborates on numerous interdisciplinary projects combining his interests in behavioral medicine and primary care. Dr. Luckmann plans to focus much of his future research on the effectiveness of clinical preventive services (screening tests and counseling strategies), on office systems for the delivery of these services, and on the patient's perspective on preventive services. He also has a secondary interest in educational research related to development of curriculum innovations at the medical school.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication.
