Dr. Shrime received his MD from the University of Texas in 2001. Medical school was followed by a residency in otolaryngology through Columbia and Cornell, a fellowship in head and neck surgical oncology at the University of Toronto, and a second fellowship in microvascular reconstructive surgery, also at the University of Toronto. He went on to get an MPH in global health from the Harvard School of Public Health in 2011, and a PhD in health policy from Harvard in 2015, where his dissertation focused on financial risk and equity in surgery. Since 2008, Dr. Shrime has been working as a surgeon with Mercy Ships throughout west and central Africa and has worked in Haiti and Saudi Arabia. Academically, his primary focus is on surgical delivery, where he has a specific interest in the intersection of health and impoverishment.

He has a secondary interest in decision-making at the end of life.
