He’s the host of the popular Freakonomics, M.D. podcast, where he tackles questions at the intersection of medicine and economics–including questions from his own research on why mortality rates rise in cities on days they host large marathons, why cardiac patients do better when cardiologists are out of town at national cardiology conferences, and why kids with summer birthdays are more likely to be diagnosed with ADHD. His creative use of natural experiments–chance occurrences that we’re exposed to, but often unaware–help us understand how health care works.

Jack Resneck Jr., MD, became president of the American Medical Association in June 2022. For more than 20 years, Dr. Resneck has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to organized medicine. He’s a passionate advocate for physicians and patients, a prominent spokesperson for innovation, and a champion for a more equitable health care system.
Whether testifying before Congress about removing dysfunction from health care, caring for his patients at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF), or advocating for physician values in emerging technology, Dr. Resneck channels his leadership to improve the lives of patients and the working environment for America’s physicians to help build stronger, healthier communities.

Currently, he is a member of the editorial board of the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology and serves on the board of directors for the National Quality Forum.
Dr. Resneck’s leadership is collaborative, inclusive, focused, and infused with purpose. This is evident whether he’s engaging the AMA’s Litigation Center to protect physicians’ free speech and fight societal discrimination against marginalized patients—or advocating on Capitol Hill for fair Medicare payment systems, improved patient access to care, lower prescription drug prices, and reduced dysfunction and burdens in health care.
Dr. Resneck is a professor and vice chair of the Department of Dermatology at UCSF and holds a joint appointment at the Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies.
In his own clinical practice, Dr. Resneck lives the challenges physicians face in striving to provide the best care for their patients. As a trusted policy expert, he has fought passionately to reduce burdens that contribute to physician burnout and interfere with patient care, including prior authorization, in-basket overload and poorly designed digital tools.
