Edit Profile


Doug Wright, MD, PhD, grew up on eastern Long Island and studied biology at Harvard as an undergraduate, with thoughts of some day becoming a physician. After college he worked in the residential building construction business for 11 years and started a construction company with his brother in Bridgehampton, NY. He then decided to change gears and prepare for medical school, which led to time spent at Genentech working on an immunology project. The Genentech project led to a project at Stanford that turned into a PhD in immunology that he completed during medical school there.

Dr. Wright did residency at Mass General in Internal Medicine with plans of a fellowship in hematology, then changed gears again and chose a path as a clinical teacher, which he has pursued as a member of the Department of Medicine Inpatient Clinician Educator Service.

He focuses on physical diagnosis, rational test utilization, consultative and perioperative medicine, as well as projects with residents.
