Alison N. Huffstetler, MD

Nice to meet you!

I am an active clinician and clinical researcher. My research evaluates health services and population health which inform policy decisions on a state and national level.

Specifically, I work on workforce distribution, payment for primary care, and the social determinants of health. I have ongoing primary care studies with the Virginia Practice Based Research Network, the Ambulatory Care Outcomes Research Network (ACORN), including a federally funded grant helping practices identify and treat unhealthy alcohol use disorder.

I teach medical students at Georgetown University as the Research Director of the Population Health Scholars Track. In this role, I mentor 40-48 students over the course of 4 years as they develop research questions, complete data analysis and learn to disseminate research findings. I also precept medical students from Virginia Commonwealth University in my practice. I am a part of the residency faculty and facilitate PGY-2 and PGY-3 residents at the Fairfax Family Practice Residency in scholarly activities.

Finally, I am currently an American Board of Medical Specialties Visiting Scholar.

My family medicine practice is in Fairfax, Virginia. I completed my residency training at the University of Virginia and went on to complete my fellowship as the Robert L. Phillips Jr. Health Policy Fellow at Georgetown University.
