Dr. Rothendler is an assistant professor of Health Law, Policy & Management at the Boston University School of Public Health. A cardiologist with additional training in medical informatics, his current research interests are in the use of large medical datasets to explore questions regarding the process and outcomes of care and self-reported health status. A recent project assessed the association of early conservative therapy for new-onset low back pain with subsequent use of opioid medication. He received his MD from the College of Physicians and Surgeons at Columbia University, training in internal medicine at Roosevelt Hospital in New York and the University of Michigan Hospitals, cardiology training at University Hospital in Boston, and nuclear cardiology training at Massachusetts General Hospital.
