Dr. Abraham Nussbaum

Abraham Nussbaum completed his medical school and general psychiatry residency at the University of North Carolina and his Masters of Theological Studies at Duke Divinity School. Currently, he directs adult inpatient services at Denver Health and is an assistant professor of psychiatry at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, where he developed an award-winning curriculum for interviewing patients that evolved into The Pocket Guide to the DSM-5 Diagnostic Exam. Dr. Nussbaum’s memoir, The Finest Traditions of My Calling: One Physician’s Search for the Renewal of Medicine, was published this year by Yale University Press. The book explores how health care reform is transforming the practice of medicine, turing physicians into technicians, and hospitals into factories.
