Daniel Davis, Ph.D.
Dan Davis is Geisinger's chief bioethics officer and director of the system's fledgling bioethics center. A native of West Virginia, he earned his Ph.D. degree in the philosophy and ethics of medicine from Georgetown University in May 1996. He also worked at Georgetown for more than 20 years, serving as director of strategic planning for the medical center (from 1988 to 1997) and then as associate dean for educational planning and evaluation at the medical school (from 1997 to 2005). At Georgetown's Center for Clinical Bioethics, he was a senior research scholar with varied responsibilities for teaching and research in bioethics; he also served as a senior ethicist on the ethics consultation service at Georgetown's hospital and as chair of Georgetown's institutional review board for psychosocial and behavioral research. From January 2006 to September 2009, he served as the executive director of the President's Council on Bioethics. In October 2009, he was appointed senior advisor for bioethics and policy in the Office of the Director at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland, where his portfolio included policy analysis and development in genomic ethics, biosecurity, Common Rule reform, and therapeutics development. He served in that capacity until his recruitment to Geisinger in September 2012. At Geisinger, in addition to his work in bioethics, he chairs a standing working group on patient engagement in research, discovery, and innovation and has served as the co-lead of an ad hoc working group founded in 2013 and organized around the goal of spurring Geisinger's growth as a learning health care system. His research interests include clinical ethics consultation; shared decision making, especially in the context of advanced illness; patient engagement in research and care; professional formation in the health professions; and, organizational culture and ethics in health care.
