Gregory Eshleman Sawin
Instructor in the Department of Family Medicine and Community Health

My work is a reflection of a core value in social justice and a passion to increase health equity. Most of my academic career has been as an educator, serving as a family medicine residency director for 10 years prior to joining Duke. Having started my career in Massachusetts, where universal coverage started in 2007, I have had a focus in primary care transformation and value based care, with special attention to doing so in residency clinics. I’m eager to use my position as Vice Chair for Education and Faculty Development in the Department of Family Medicine and Community Health to coordinate efforts across its five divisions and growing research group to build “learning systems” that adopt continuous improvement culture in all that we do.

Research interests: health equity, team based care, primary care transformation, leadership and improvement science and group based opioid treatment.
