Dow Division for Urologic Health Services Research
Dr. Hollingsworth is an Assistant Professor of Urology. He received his medical degree from Georgetown University's School of Medicine in 2002, and earned a Master of Science degree in Health and Healthcare Research through the University of Michigan's Horace H. Rackham School of Graduate Studies in 2006. Following completion of his urology residency training at Michigan (2002-2008), he entered the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Clinical Scholars Program (2008-2010).
Since joining the faculty in 2010, Dr. Hollingsworth's research has encompassed a broad range of health services disciplines. He has investigated the effect of financial incentives associated with physician ownership on procedure utilization. He has also examined the relationship between variation in provider practice and the quality and costs of urological care. His current line of inquiry explores the interface between primary and specialty care. With funding from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, he is investigating how patterns of connection among surgeons, referring primary care physicians, and consultants impact the efficiency of care delivered around the surgical episode.
