Dr. Matthew Tobey, MD MPH
Associate Program Director of the Rural Health Leadership Fellowship
Dr. Tobey works as a clinician, researcher and innovator in interdisciplinary clinical partnerships. In 2015, he founded the Massachusetts General Hospital Fellowship Program in Rural Health Leadership, a unique program that offers post-residency training to physicians who seek ongoing training in rural health, health systems, practice transformation, medical education and clinical care. Through that project, he has cultivated one of the strongest academic-tribal and academic-Indian Health Service partnerships in the region and increasingly in the nation. In the Boston area, he is involved in a HRSA-funded nursing program, investigating the community impact of criminal justice system involvement, and working with patients with substance use disorder care. He teaches as an adjunct faculty in the Physician Assistant Program at the Massachusetts General Hospital Institute of Health Professions (MGH-IHP) as well as teaching preclinical and clinical students from Harvard Medical School and the MGH-IHP.
