Dr. Campbell is a sociologist with an expertise in survey science who conducts research relating to physician conflict of interest and professionalism. With funding from various organizations, including the Office for Research Integrity in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the National Institutes of Health, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, and the Institute for Medicine as a Profession, he has performed national surveys, gathered information from key decision makers, and developed tools to assess physicians’ professional norms and attitudes. Dr. Campbell aims to further understanding of how academic-industry relationships affect the process and outcomes of biomedical research; the effects of local health care market competition on the activities and attitudes of medical school faculty; and the impact of data-sharing and withholding on academic science. He is also investigating the role of organizational culture in promoting patient safety in the inpatient and long term care settings. His research has attracted attention from peers, health care organizations, and national policymakers.
