THE

JOHN D. THOMPSON DISTINGUISHED VISITING FELLOW AWARD

2020 JOHN D. THOMPSON FELLOW

KATHERINE BAICKER, PhD

DEAN & EMMETT DEDMOND PROFESSOR

HARRIS SCHOOL OF PUBLIC POLICY

UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO

The faculty, students, and alumnae of the YSPH Health Management Program are proud to celebrate and honor the memory of Professor John D. Thompson with the John D. Thompson Distinguished Visiting Fellow Award. The award pays tribute to Professor Thompson’s contributions as an educator, researcher, and mentor in health administration, including his pioneering work in healthcare finance and hospital quality of care. The fellowship program brings a leader in health administration to the School each year to share their experiences with students and discuss emerging challenges in health administration. The program is supported by the John Devereaux Thompson Academic Development fund. 

John D. Thompson (1917-1992) was a professor at Yale’s Schools of Nursing, Medicine, and Public Health, and is perhaps best known for his role in the development of Diagnosis Related Groups (DRGs) for hospital reimbursement. A true innovator, Professor Thompson was an early advocate for the application of quantitative data in health policy formulation. Today’s healthcare management students and leaders continue to be inspired by his compassion for patients, dedication to research, and belief in the power of data.
