Meet Taison Bell, MD
I was born in Boston but spent most of my childhood in Lynchburg, VA. After graduating from UVA with a degree in African-American and African Studies, I completed medical school at Columbia University and then internal medicine residency at the Massachusetts General Hospital. I was fortunate to be a chief resident at MGH and then completed an infectious disease fellowship at the combined Mass General and Brigham and Women’s Hospital program. I guess this wasn’t enough, so I completed a critical care fellowship at the National Institutes of Health. I am currently an Assistant Professor of Medicine in the divisions of Infectious Disease and Pulmonary/Critical Care Medicine and Assistant Director of the Medical ICU. I also direct the Summer Medical Leadership Program through the Diversity Office. Lastly, I’m currently enrolled in the Executive MBA program at the UVA Darden School of Business. I have many interests, though I’m most interested in improving inpatient healthcare delivery through the smart use of technology and increasing workforce diversity.
