Overview
Dr. Clapp is a health services researcher focused on improving the quality of obstetric care and outcomes for women and neonates during the process of labor and delivery. He completed his medical degree at the University of North Carolina and Masters in Public Health at Harvard School of Public Health. He completed residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women's Hospital and fellowship in maternal-fetal medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital. His research interests include quality metrics and patient safety for obstetrical care and examining the effects of health policies on obstetrical outcomes and women's access to pregnancy-related care. He currently is exploring opportunities for risk stratification and prediction for adverse maternal and neonatal outcomes during labor and delivery.

Publications listed below are automatically derived from MEDLINE/PubMed and other sources, which might result in incorrect or missing publications. Faculty can login to make corrections and additions.
Newest   |   Oldest   |   Most Cited   |   Most Discussed   |   Timeline   |   Field Summary   |   Plain Text
PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
