Academic Interests

As a physician trained in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics, Dr. DiMaggio has academic interests that include care for medically, psychologically, and socially complex patients of all ages as well as medical education. In particular, he is focused upon improving Transition Care (the care of adolescents and young adults with chronic childhood conditions), reducing health care disparities, and improving outcomes in patients with chronic diseases, especially those entering adulthood. In the same way these patients warrant novel approaches to their care, physicians-in-training must be equipped with new approaches to patients in the ever-changing landscape of medicine. Indeed, the social revolution modern technology has brought about should be utilized to provide comprehensive care to our patients, and our trainees and providers should be discovering new ways to do so.
 

Clinical Interests

Comprehensive primary care in and out of the hospital for medically and socially complex patients; transitions of care for chronically ill adolescents and young adults; behavioral and mental health in patients with chronic disease, particularly in young adulthood; health outcomes for the children in the care of the chronically ill.
