Research Summary

Kelly Doran, MD, MHS is an emergency physician and faculty member in the Department of Population Health and the Department of Emergency Medicine who studies how health care systems can better address homelessness and other social determinants of health. Dr. Doran has been active in homelessness related work and research since working at a student-run homeless shelter as an undergraduate at Harvard College. Dr. Doran attended medical school at the University of Michigan, completed a residency in emergency medicine at NYU-Bellevue, and earned a master’s degree in health sciences as a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Clinical Scholar at Yale University. She is a fellow of the New York Academy of Medicine and works clinically in the emergency department at Bellevue Hospital Center.

Dr. Doran's research areas of expertise include homelessness, supportive housing, social determinants of health, substance use, frequent emergency department use, reasons for emergency department use, and high-cost patients. Her research on homelessness and emergency department use has been published in journals including the American Journal of Public Health, Medical Care, and Annals of Emergency Medicine. She previously served as an advisor to the New York State Department of Health on an innovative program to use Medicaid to fund supportive housing, described in an article she co-authored in the New England Journal of Medicine.

Dr. Doran's current research projects include a National Institutes of Health / National Institute on Drug Abuse K23-funded study on addressing homelessness and substance abuse in emergency department patients. The study aims to develop a tool to predict future homelessness among emergency department patients and an intervention to help prevent homelessness. Other active projects include a study of temporal trends in health services use and homelessness, and a Community Health Worker intervention to improve health and reduce healthcare costs in two low-income housing buildings in New York City's Lower East Side.

Dr. Doran conducts cross-disciplinary, policy-relevant research on how health care systems can better address homelessness and other social determinants of health.
