Matt Frank
Matthew Frank graduated from Northwestern University in 1993 with a double major in Economics and International Studies. He then worked for over a decade in business — in finance with Goldman Sachs, among other firms, and in strategy consulting — and also spent several years in the nonprofit sector in the areas of education and mental health. In June 2009, Matthew received an MDiv from Harvard Divinity School, where his coursework focused on ethics and public policy. While at HDS, he participated in Harvard Medical School’s Fellowship in Medical Ethics, coauthored a chapter of a National Institutes of Health bioethics curriculum, and served on the Society of General Internal Medicine’s Pay-for-Performance Subcommittee. For his master’s thesis, “Justice and the Benefits of Health Research,” he explored philosophical and legal aspects to the question of whether research subjects have rights to benefit from their participation in clinical trials, and if so, what the extent of these rights may be. Matthew will enter the PhD Program in Health Policy in the fall of 2009; he is the recipient of a National Institute of Mental Health traineeship. His current research interests include health care financing and insurance, priority setting and resource allocation, research ethics, and mental health policy. Contact: mfrank4@gmail.com
