Patrick Remington, MD, MPH
As the Director of the Preventive Medicine Residency Program, I draw upon my experience practicing public health and developing educational and other programs. My experience at the CDC, Wisconsin Division of Public Health, and UW School of Medicine and Public Health provides me with a solid understanding of role for physicians in efforts to improve the health of populations—focusing on public health and health equity. My own research focuses on the interface between science and practice and has culminated in a model for public health surveillance for engaging communities in broad-based efforts to measure health and mobilize communities toward action. In addition to my work with our residents, I teach courses to undergraduate, public health, and medical students.
Elizabeth Salisbury-Afshar, MD, MPH
Associate Program Director
As the Associate Program Director, I draw from my experiences working in public health roles, including serving as Medical Director of Behavioral Health Systems Baltimore and Medical Director of Behavioral Health at the Chicago Department of Public Health. I am board certified in family medicine, preventive medicine/public health and addiction medicine, and my expertise lies at the intersection of these fields. Much of my work focuses on expanding access to evidence-based interventions to the opioid overdose crisis.

In my role as the Preventive Medicine Residency Manager, it is my great pleasure to be a source to residents as they navigate their two years in this program.
In addition to working with the residency, I coordinate a medical student education program called the Path of Distinction in Public Health.
