Biography

Mary Tinetti, MD, is a geriatrician focused on helping patients with multiple health conditions receive well-rounded care, as well as weigh the benefits and harms of commonly used medicines. 

Dr. Tinetti is at the forefront of a nationwide effort to develop and test an approach to health care that aligns clinical care and decision-making with specific priorities of older adults with multiple health problems. This involves assisting patients in identifying their most important health goals and teaching clinicians to translate these goals into care decisions. She is also evaluating how feasible this approach is for clinical care and its effect on patient outcomes. 

In her research, Dr. Tinetti and her team helped identify the causes, consequences, and prevention of fall injuries in older adults and translated these findings into clinical and public health practice.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) and several foundations fund Dr. Tinetti’s work, and she has published more than 250 peer-reviewed articles. She has received numerous awards, is a member of the National Academy of Medicine, and is the recipient of a MacArthur Foundation fellowship.

Dr. Tinetti is the Gladys Phillips Crofoot Professor of Medicine (Geriatrics) at Yale School of Medicine.
