Biography

Dennis Shung MD, MHS, PhD, is a general gastroenterologist with a particular interest in managing patients with gastrointestinal bleeding.

Gastrointestinal diseases are usually multifactorial, Dr. Shung says, so it is rewarding to work with the patient to get a holistic view into the best way to improve their gastrointestinal health. 

“I enjoy listening to patients tell their stories and helping them understand, cope with, and get the right treatment for their gastrointestinal issues,” Dr. Shung says. 

In addition to caring for patients, Dr. Shung is director of digital health in digestive diseases for Yale School of Medicine (his MHS is in clinical informatics and his PhD is in investigative medicine), and an assistant professor  studying the intersection of clinical big data, informatics, and machine learning, with a focus on helping low-risk patients who are not hospitalized with gastrointestinal bleeding. “I work to empower doctors with tools to give the right care to the right person at the right time,” he says.
