Throughout his undergraduate education and subsequent medical training at Cornell University, Jefferson Medical College and Stanford University, Dr. Ben-Aviv searched out a path not often entertained by his peers. As a Human Biology, Health, and Society major, he learned the importance of population health and the need for sound program development to help as many people as possible.
During his time in medical school, he found that his passion for medicine was strongest in the care of patients with life-changing injuries, including spinal cord injury and traumatic brain injury and also for the opposite patient population; weekend warriors with need for preventative musculoskeletal care to prolong their active years. With these passions, the specialty of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation was a natural choice.
As a physiatrist, Dr. Ben-Aviv expanded his clinical and administrative experience to see medicine and patient care from many different angles. He has worked in occupational health, disability medicine, pain medicine, sports medicine, inpatient rehabilitation, sub-acute rehabilitation, and now concentrates on population health as it relates to the entire post-acute care continuum. He has served as medical and program director of many rehab facilities and as CMO of a start-up rehab company. His current roles include leadership position in a population health organization and an insurance company medical directorship with a concentration on post-acute care.
Through his various administrative roles, Dr. Ben-Aviv has developed multiple systems and programs to help educate and guide the medical staff, caregivers, and patients to maximize health and wellbeing while avoiding complications and negative outcomes. Each stop in his educational and professional path enhanced Dr. Ben-Aviv's sense of entrepreneurship and out of the box thinking.
Despite maintaining a busy clinical load, Dr. Ben-Aviv spends his time thinking through the limitations of the current medical system and how to solve complicated barriers we face to provide optimal healthcare to the population. When not taking care of patients and developing new systems in healthcare, Dr. Ben-Aviv also enjoys coming up with inventions that improve the efficiency of everyday life; inventions that have the potential to impact both the medical community and the non-medical community. When not at work, Dr. Ben-Aviv enjoys spending time at home with his wife and twin girls and traveling the world in search of a new and fulfilling life experiences.
