Roger Auth, MD
Undergraduate: University of Maryland, College Park
Medical School: University of Maryland School of Medicine
Roger was born and raised a Maryland Terrapin and prior to residency had never lived outside of his home state. What drew me to Rhode Island and Brown were many things: the phenomenal leadership and experience of our faculty, evidence based cultures of our medicine and pediatrics departments, flexibility and encouragement to pursue non-medical ambitions, and the collaborative and motivating personalities of my med-peds family.
Living in Rhode Island has kept me rooted to the things that make me who I am, amidst what most would argue is an incredibly challenging time of life, residency. At Brown I’ve had ample time for the things that are at the core of my personality: my wife, family (including my cat), friends, and hobbies, including: surfing, paddle/kite/skate/snowboarding, camping, hiking, and playing various musical instruments both well and badly.
Professionally, I am interested in a career in Pulmonary and Critical Care medicine. I am currently involved in clinical research related to both adult and pediatric pulmonology with a focus on improving inpatient care for individuals with cystic fibrosis. This research has been presented at the North American Cystic Fibrosis Conference. I have secondary interests in palliative care and improving resident utilization of point of care ultrasound. I have felt tremendously supported by the faculty at Brown and my colleagues with whom I engage in these research projects and clinical endeavors.
