Dr. Rhee is a Thomas O. Pyle Research Fellow in the Department of Population Medicine at Harvard Medical School and Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Institute and a critical care and infectious disease physician at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.  He graduated summa cum laude from Georgetown University School of Medicine and completed his internal medicine residency, chief residency, and critical care fellowship at Stanford University Hospital prior to his infectious disease fellowship at Massachusetts General Hospital.  He is currently obtaining his MPH degree at Harvard School of Public Health. 

Dr. Rhee’s research interest is in the epidemiology, surveillance, and prevention of sepsis and healthcare-associated infections, particularly those pertaining to critically ill patients.  His primary research project is a multicenter observational study funded by the CDC that is aimed at exploring surveillance definitions that can be used to track population-level sepsis rates using objective clinical data ascertainable from electronic health record systems.  He is also interested in developing early detection clinical algorithms to predict the onset of septic shock in hospitalized patients.
