Dr. Rosoff is Director of the Clinical Ethics Program at Duke University Hospital. As such, he serves as Chair for both the Hospital Ethics Committee and the Clinical Ethics Consult Subcommittee. He teaches clinical ethics extensively throughout the hospital and has developed specialized curricula for the house staff in the Departments of Medicine and Pediatrics and the Department of Nursing. His clinical and research interests center around the equitable allocation of scarce resources. In particular, Dr. Rosoff focuses on vaccines or intensive care during a pandemic, drugs during acute shortages, rationing in a general health care system, and how to draw cut-off points for rationing on more or less continuous variables such as age.
