The Rev. Daniel E. Hall


The Rev. Daniel Hall, M.D., M.Div, M.H.Sc. is Associate Professor of Surgery at the University of Pittsburgh and Core Investigator at the VA Center for Health Equity Research and Promotion.

Dr. Hall is a general surgeon with training in both moral philosophy and theology, interested in the ethics of surgery and how surgical residency shapes the character of surgeons-in-training.

His current research focuses on improving the decision-making and preoperative care of frail patients, exploring how best to form the virtues of character necessary for good surgical practice.

With a deep value for the dignity of the human person, he brings a radically different perspective to patient care that is impacting systemic change in the practice of medicine.

Dr. Hall earned degrees in medicine and theology from Yale University before completing his surgical training at the University of Pittsburgh. He is also an ordained priest in the Episcopal Church.
