Stephanie T. Carter-Henry, MD, MS, FAAFP
Associate Professor
Education Director and Medical Director

Pronounciation of Dr. Stephanie Carter-Henry

UMass Chan Medical School, 2008
UMass Chan Family Medicine Residency (Barre), 2011
Clinical/Academic Interests: Clinically I enjoy care of young famllies, prenatal, intrapartum and postpartum/newborn care. I enjoy procedures including colposcopy. I am passionate about care of patients with complex mental health needs and co-management with integrated behavioral health. I am interested in the interface between mindfulness, leadership, and process improvement and how to incorporate this into medical education. I am committed to developing sustainable practices that allow us to care for our communities and educate our learners to deliver quality care and how to work with/lead a highly effective team. I am interested to use the power of the EMR to improve sustainability and reduce burden and non-value added work for our teams. I enjoy the variety in my work which includes teaching, inpatient MCH, primary care, college health, procedural care and leadership. 
About Stephanie: I live in Holden, MA with my husband Matt and children Samantha and Elsa (named after her maternal grandmother and not Frozen!) I enjoy the New England seasons and have a favorite part of each of them! In particular, I love the Rhode Island shoreline and frequent the beach with my family in the summer. My extended family is mostly in Massachusetts and Rhode Island and I've been known to drop the occasional "r" in conversation! I am one of two children with a younger sister in Denver and definitely have older child tendencies. I'm a UMass "lifer" as you can tell from my training!
Why Family Medicine? Family Medicine values caring for entire families and communities and I draw strength from this. There is so much insight and effectiveness you can gain as a doctor for an entire family and it makes my work even more meaningful. In particular, the opportunity to care for families through the transitions that come with pregnancy, delivery and transitions after delivery is one that I find rewarding and family medicine has such a unique ability to care for families in this way - it is the best  part of what I get to do.

  Rachel Davis-Martin, PhD
Licensed Clinical Health Psychologist
Associate Director of Behavioral Health Service
Assistant Professor, Department of Emergency Medicine
Assistant Professor, Department of Family Medicine and Community Health
Doctoral Program, PhD Clinical Psychology, University of Mississippi, Oxford, MS
Pre-doctoral Internship, Behavioral Medicine Track, University of Texas Health Science Center, San Antonio, TX
Post-doctoral Fellowship, Integrated Behavioral Health and Implementation Science, UMass Chan Medicall School 
Clinical/Academic Areas of Interest: Mindfulness- and Acceptance-Based Behavior Therapies, Outpatient Assessment and Management of Suicide Risk and Safety Planning, Motivational Interviewing, Technology-Enhanced Substance Use Treatment, Sleep Disorders, Health Behavior Change, and Implementation Science
About Rachel: I was born in Alabama and spent most of my life living in the South (Alabama 22 years, Mississippi 5 years, and Texas 1 year). I moved to Massachusetts for my fellowship in 2016 and fell in love with the state the minute we arrived. I am a mother of 2 adventurous boys (plus any number of foster children we have at that moment) and 3 dogs. I love cooking for friends and family, spending time outdoors year-round, and carpentry. I’m very extroverted and love any opportunity to hang out and chat.
Why Family Medicine? I love the unique opportunity integrated behavioral healthcare in family medicine provides. I like that I get to treat patients across the life span while collaborating with their medical providers on their treatment plans and needs. I believe family medicine enables a more complete and better care by combining pical medicine with behavioral medicine in one environment.
     
    Henry Del Rosario, MD
Assistant Professor
Chicago Medical School at Rosalind Franklin University
West Suburban Family Medicine Residency Program, Chicago
Clinical/Academic Interests: Global health, procedures, refugee health care
About Henry: I live in Providence, RI with my wife, Jisoo, a pulmonologist at Brown. When I'm not commuting, I enjoy hiking and art (particularly Zen calligraphy and photography). My artist portfolio can be found online at www.henrydelrosario.com/ 
I've made several trips to northern and southern China helping to teach family medicine to residents as well as establish a culture of primary care in Asia.
Why Hahnemann? I have a passion for medical education and the theory of teaching and so am excited to be part of the culture of learning at Hahnemann. 
Why Family Medicine? The beauty of family medicine comes from seeing patients from birth to death, in the clinic and in the hospital, and multiple members of the same family. As a doctor you are privy to some of the most intimate, vulnerable, and beautiful aspects of human experience. I find that this variety is mentally fulfilling, fun, and sustainable. A wide spectrum may also bring in difficult situations or patients very different than you, but uncomfortableness stretches your heart muscle— and empathy is something we need more of in this world.
     
     

 

 

Michael Ennis, MD
Professor  
Assistant Dean of Student Advising, UMass Chan Medical School
University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry, 1983
UMass Chan Family Medicine Residency (Barre), 1986
Clinical/Academic Interests: Student/Resident mentoring, family centered maternity care, travel medicine
About Michael:  I'm from the Bronx, New York. I worked as a taxidriver in NYC for several years prior to going to medical school.
Why Hahnemann? Teaching residents and students feels like a special privilege that I get to enjoy every day. It is definitely one of the top reasons that I have continued to work at Hahnemann since 1986. Bearing witness to, and occasionally helping, our residents transform into highly competent clinicians is a blast! 
Why Family Medicine? My reasons for choosing family medicine continue to constantly morph and evolve. Perhaps, as a student, I initially came to this work enchanted by the idea of caring for the broadest of spectrums: “the cradle to the grave.” Nowadays, it is much more the continuity that I have with my families that sustains my passion for being a family doctor. Caring for extended families, sometimes 4 generations, delivering the babies of women whom I delivered as babies....these things too feel like a unique privilege that family doctors get to enjoy.

I am excited to teach and work with the residents and medical students rotating through family medicine. I especially want to help our learners grow their sports medicine and Osteopathic medicine knowledge and how we can best use them in primary care. 
About Emily: I am originally from Pennsylvania and grew up outside of Philadelphia.  I went to college and graduate school in Massachusetts where I met my husband who is also a physician. We live in Brimfield and love exploring all of the trails in central and western MA! We love to go kayaking, hiking, biking, and walking on the trails with our Goldendoodle puppy Benji.

About Josephine: I am a Family Physician with a strong interest in whole person medicine, addressing mind, body, and spirit. As a maternal and child health provider, I am committed to improving the delivery of care to mothers, fathers, and children-- the family. I am committed to decreasing health disparities.  I am not only interested in the care of the patient but interested in addressing the wellness of physicians and healthcare workers. I am not only a doctor but committed to my family, my faith, and my community.  On any given day, what will you find me doing? Talking with family and friends, reading, helping someone, and living life to its fullest.
Why Hahnemann? HFHC at UMass is a well-respected teaching health center that cares for a diverse patient population.  HFHC is a place of innovation and transformation. These were some of the reasons I chose HFHC. The providers are cohesive and support one another. At HFHC, there are opportunities to train learners and influence the next generation of doctors. Family Centered Maternity Care focuses on a continuum of care that results in a good birth outcome. As a family physician in an environment where potential risk can be addressed during the preconception or interconception period, we can have an impact on mitigating risks and aim for better outcomes clinically and socially.

Professor of Family Medicine
Professor of OB-GYN
Department Quality Officer
Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, MD, 1987
Highland Hospital/University of Rochester Family Medicine Residency (1990)
Health Services Research and General Academic Preparatory Fellowship at University of Rochester School of Medicine (1991) 
Clinical/Academic Interests:  Evidence-based medicine, adolescent medicine, women's health, computers and electronic technology in medicine, electrocardiography, dermatology, office surgical procedures, office ultrasound. I'm the associate editor of The 5 Minute Clinical Consult (Lippincott/Wolters Kluwer Health). I can’t believe I’m fortunate enough to get paid to write and edit and learn! 
About Jeremy:  After completing a fellowship in health services research in Rochester, I practiced family medicine, college health, and emergency medicine for about 10 years before coming to UMass. I was also a medical advisor of a Planned Parenthood site in CT.  I have a particular interest and expertise (certificate of added qualifications from the ABFM) in adolescent medicine. I enjoy seeing patients at Clark University. Outside of medicine, I enjoy the outdoors, especially hiking and downhill skiing. I run for exercise. I love (really love) to sing and folk dance.  
Why Hahnemann? I joined Hahnemann because I felt a particular kinship with the faculty there. We share a sense of mission to our patients and a passion for teaching our learners. We offer full spectrum women's care, office procedures, and treat OUD with buprenorphine. All of our residents come with diverse interests and needs, and they are well-supported by an equally diverse, intelligent, amazing, and compassionate faculty committed to resident education.
Why Family Medicine? I think I would get bored doing the same thing every day! Instead, I am constantly challenged by the innumerable presentations we see here in our office. I get to practice to the full extent of my knowledge, training, and experience. I have several multigenerational families in my practice, and find getting to know all my patients very satisfying. Over time, I have grown with them. I cannot imagine practicing any other medical specialty. Although I will never be in the highest paid of physician specialties, I am already the most rewarded for my work.

In my spare time I enjoy running, hiking, reading, photography and spending quality time outside with my family and dog.

The majority of my nursing career has been throughout the UMass healthcare system and these positive experiences lead me to want to remain in the organization as a provider. I have worked at the bedside at both the University and Memorial campuses.
