Dr. Daniel E. Singer has directed the MGH Fellowship Program in General Internal Medicine for nearly three decades. Over that period he has served as research mentor to more than 40 fellows and other trainees, the vast majority of whom remain in academic positions, and many of whom are leaders in their chosen field of investigation. Dr. Singer also co-directs the introductory Clinical Epidemiology course in the intensive Summer Program in Clinical Effectiveness, a central element in the Fellowship's HSPH-based curriculum. Dr. Singer's research focuses on preventive medicine and also on increasing efficiency in the treatment of common clinical conditions. In particular, he is an internationally recognized leader in the field of stroke prevention in atrial fibrillation (AF). With his colleagues, Dr. Singer has helped establish the efficacy of anticoagulant therapy in AF, identified risk factors for stroke, defined the optimal range of warfarin anticoagulation in AF, and served on the Executive Committee of the pivotal trial of a novel anticoagulant (rivaroxaban). He was the chair and lead author of the Atrial Fibrillation chapter in the 2008 American College of Chest Physicians Consensus Conference on Antithrombotic and Thrombolytic Therapy. He has also conducted extensive investigations on diabetes, community-acquired pneumonia and lumbar spine disorders. Fellows have led many of these investigations. Dr. Singer was the 2003 recipient of the John M. Eisenberg Award, the Society of General Internal Medicine's highest award for career achievements in research. In addition, Dr. Singer was awarded the 2004 and 2008 C. Miller Fisher Award from the New England chapter of the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association for his research on stroke prevention. In large part reflecting his work in the Fellowship Program, Dr. Singer also received the 2007-2008 Harvard Medical School William Silen Lifetime Achievement in Mentoring Award.

Her current research focuses on using system-level and population-level interventions to translate evidence-based tobacco dependence treatment into routine clinical practice in multiple settings that include primary and specialty ambulatory care, prenatal care, and inpatient hospitalization. This work is facilitated by her role as Chair of the Tobacco Task Force for Partners HealthCare System and as Director of the MGH Tobacco Research and Treatment Center, a multidisciplinary team based in the General Medicine Division. Other areas of research are assessing tobacco control public policy, eliminating secondhand smoke exposure, and promoting tobacco treatment as part of global health.

Dr. Rigotti is Past President of the Society for Research in Nicotine and Tobacco, former Deputy Editor for Nicotine and Tobacco Research, and past editorial board member for the Journal of General Internal Medicine. She has mentored a number of General Medicine Fellows with a variety of interests and junior faculty from multiple medical fields. Most have gone on to successful careers as independent clinician-investigators. Her contributions have been recognized by the Educator of the Year Award from the Association for Prevention Teaching and Research, an innovation award from the Society of General Internal Medicine, and the American College of Physicians’ James K. Bruce Award for Distinguished Contributions in Preventive Medicine.
