Tanner Caverly, MD, MPH, is a Research Scientist in the VA HSR&D Center for Clinical Management Research at VA Ann Arbor and an Assistant Professor in the Departments of Learning Health Sciences and Internal Medicine at the University of Michigan Medical School. Dr. Caverly graduated from Duke University with a BS in Biology and Physics, received his medical degree from Ohio State University, and has a master of public health degree from the University of Colorado School of Public Health. He completed internal medicine residency training, a year as chief medical resident, and a primary care research fellowship at the University of Colorado, before coming to Ann Arbor for an Advanced VA Fellowship in HSR&D at the Ann Arbor VA. Dr. Caverly's research focuses on making preventive services more Veteran centered, both by incorporating individualized estimates of risks and benefits into decision support and by improving the way patients are involved in decision-making. His HSR&D Career Development Award explores how to best achieve these goals for a new preventive service, low-dose computed tomography lung cancer screening - where it is critically important to have seamless and reliable approaches for informing PCPs how to take a personalized approach to screening decisions, given the potential to incur both important risk reductions and risk increases from this increasingly available preventive service.
