Minority Faculty Career Development Award (MFCDA)
Dr. George Molina is a practicing Surgical Oncologist in the Division of Surgical Oncology at Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH) and the Gastrointestinal Cancer Treatment Center at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Dr. Molina obtained an MPH in Quantitative Methods from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health (HSPH). As part of his training in General Surgery at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), he completed a two-year post-graduate research fellowship at Ariadne Labs, a joint health systems innovation center of BWH and HSPH. Dr. Molina has previously demonstrated that implementation of a surgical safety checklist was associated with improvements in the perceived culture of surgical safety in South Carolina, and that state-wide implementation of the surgical safety checklist was associated with a significant reduction in postoperative mortality.
Dr. Molina's current research interests include improving the safety, quality, and equity of surgical care through health systems innovation. He is also interested in understanding how patients navigate cancer care and the impact of fragmentation of cancer care on disparities in surgical outcomes in the United States. Dr. Molina conducts his research at the Center for Surgery and Public Health and at Ariadne Labs.

Identifying factors associated with variation in surgical treatment of colorectal liver metastasis
Role Description: The goals of this study are to conduct a county-level spatiotemporal analysis to assess the relationship between clinical, sociodemographic, and geographic characteristics and likelihood of undergoing surgical treatment of colorectal liver metastasis in the United States between 2010 and 2018 and to develop an institutional database to identify clinical and sociodemographic characteristics associated with surgical treatment of colorectal liver metastasis at Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Hospital between 2010 and 2020.

Addressing Resource Needs in Health Care Systems' COVID-19 Response
Role Description: The aim of this project was to aid health care systems in addressing the challenges of resource management at a point of critical need (e.g., infectious epidemic or pandemic) by focusing on three specific areas: 1) redeployment of human resources for COVID-19 frontline needs, 2) rapid onboarding of redeployed clinicians, and 3) post-COVID-19 surgical triage.
