Research Interests

Jennifer Tjia, MD, MSCE, FAAHPM is Professor (tenure track) of Population and Quantitative Health Sciences in the Division of Epidemiology. She received her MD from Boston University's Combined BA-MD Medical Program and her Master of Science in Clinical Epidemiology from the University of Pennsylvania. She is board certified in Hospice and Palliative Medicine (HPM) and Geriatric Medicine. Her research agenda aims to improve healthcare delivery for marginalized populations. Her funded projects focus on two areas: (1) the impact of structural racism and implicit bias on care delivery and (2) optimizing medication use by using goal concordant prescribing and deprescribing in hospice and palliative care. She is PI of a NIH R01 to conduct a mixed-methods study to disentangle the relationships between residential segregation, neighborhood deprivation & healthcare utilization in serious illnes [R01 NR020439], and a R01 for a clinical trial of a community-engaged intervention to mitigate implicit bias in clinician-patient relationships [R01 MD011532]. She is also PI of an R21 to pilot test a deprescribing intervention for hospice patients [R21 AG0600017]. She has been an investigator on numerous federal and foundation research grants to use implementation science to integrate evidence-based practices into clinical medicine and population health management. She currently has a K24 to mentor promising early-stage investigators in palliative medicine research [K24 AG068300] and is recipient of a 2015 Cambia Health Foundation Sojourns Leadership award for leadership in community-engaged health system transformation.

Post Docs

We have an opening for a post-doc. We seek physicians, psychologists, doctorally-prepared nurses, social workers, and other clinicians who wish to prepare themselves for an academic research career in palliative care and health services research or pharmacoepidemiology. Key areas of scholarship include caregiver engagement in serious illness, symptom management, hospice enrollment, hospice policy, and medication use in older adults with chronic conditions. The Postdoctoral Research Fellow will be responsible for conducting and assisting in studies examining caregiver engagement in serious illness, and the interaction between symptom management, hospice enrollment, hospice policy, and medication use in older adults with chronic conditions, as well as other funded and unfunded projects. Appropriate candidates may choose to pursue a Master of Science in Clinical Investigation in addition to participating in post-doctoral training seminars. This is a two year position. The Fellow will have opportunities to develop their own research question, compose and submit their own grants, write and publish in scientific journals, and continue their own scholarly and research development with input from other faculty and experts.
