The Michigan Collaborative for Type 2 Diabetes is incredibly lucky to have Lauren Oshman, MD, MPH, serving as a program co-director, effective March 1st, 2021.
Dr. Oshman is a family physician and clinical associate professor in the University of Michigan Department of Family Medicine. She graduated from Baylor College of Medicine and completed Family Medicine residency training at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York, NY.
She completed the Cook County Faculty Development Fellowship in Chicago, Ill. and NorthShore University HealthSystem Quality and Patient Safety Fellowship in Chicago, Ill. . Prior to joining the University of Michigan in 2020, she practiced for five years in Concord, New Hampshire, then served as a residency faculty member and vice-chair for quality at NorthShore University Health System in Chicago. She has experience leading quality improvement in diabetes and other chronic disease initiatives at NorthShore.
Initially Dr. Oshman will be focused on recruitment, but as participants are onboarded, Dr. Oshman’s role will shift to focusing on the quality improvement initiatives we will be implementing, since her expertise lies in developing and evaluating quality initiatives.
Dr. Oshman and her experience in QI will be an asset to the MCT2D Coordinating Center and participants alike.
