Meet John Yeatts, MD, MPH, a medical instructor and hospitalist at Duke University Hospital. In July we welcomed Dr. Yeatts into our GIM faculty. His primary interests are health care finance, value based care, population healthcare, and developing as a physician executive.

Prior to medical school, Dr. Yeatts worked as a financial analyst at Goldman Sachs in London and has a Masters degree in Public Health from the University of North Carolina. He completed a four-year residency at Duke in internal medicine plus the Management and Leadership Pathway for Residents (MLPR).

Outside of work he is an avid fisherman, primarily fly fishing for trout. Last September he took a trip to Alaska to fish for Silver Salmon with a colleague (John Middleton, nephrology).american-river-ak

He decided to come to Duke “because of its world class reputation, unique opportunity within the Management and Leadership Pathway, and family roots in the area.”

Dr. Yeatts enjoys reading, and recently read “Skyfaring” by Mark Vanhoenacker and “The Big Sky” by AB Guthrie.

He is the father of “two fantastic little boys”, Jack age 5 and Walt age 3, both of whom are also excellent fisherman.
