Jonathan M. Green, MD

Jonathan M. Green, MD, associate professor of medicine, is being recognized for his dedication to community service through the Community Health-In-Partnership Services (CHIPS) program in St. Louis.

Green, a Pulmonary and Critical Care physician, has worked with CHIPS for the past three years. CHIPS, located on North Grand, provides free primary care and social services to the uninsured and underinsured. Green sees patients each week, including a bi-weekly evening session. Patients describe him as exceptionally good and compassionate, and the staff regards him as a star provider who practices medicine with unbridled enthusiasm.

In addition to seeing patients himself, Green has enlisted more than 40 Washington University medical students to participate on the medical team, conducting health screenings at outreach sites and acting as a major source of support for CHIPS. Green has developed this experience into a selectives course that offers a shadowing experience for interested medical students.

Green has also worked to improve administrative issues at CHIPS; he has streamlined the referral process and procured funding from the American Medical Association to fund CHIPS’ Living Lean Program, which targets obesity. He also worked with Barnes-Jewish Hospital to provide donated equipment, supplies, and medications.

Green’s volunteer efforts extend to international work as well, including participation in a six-week mission with Project Hope providing care in Vietnam and Timor Leste, as well as traveling to Eritrea, Africa, with colleague Jack H. Ladenson, PhD.

Green earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Michigan in 1982 and his medical degree from Wayne State University in 1986. He completed his medical training with an internship and residency at Boston City Hospital, a research fellowship at Boston University and postdoctoral fellowships at the University of Michigan. He joined the Washington University faculty in 1996.
