Matthew J. Crowley, MD, MHS



I am a Duke University Associate Professor of Medicine (Endocrinology) with clinical appointments at Durham VA Medical Center and Duke University Medical Center. I serve as Duke’s Endocrinology Fellowship Program Director and Deputy Director of the Physician Health Services Research Fellowship Program at ADAPT. My primary area of research is care delivery innovation for patients who have poorly controlled diabetes despite receiving clinic-based care. I have a particular interest in moving diabetes management beyond the clinic setting in the ‘real world’ using telemedicine and eHealth-based strategies, and lead multiple studies in this area. I also engage in research and systematic reviews designed to improve our understanding of the real-world impact of common diabetes medications. I am passionate about VA’s mission to care for those who were brave enough to serve our country, and believe that the VA system’s resources and flexibility enable it to provide the best and most innovative diabetes care in the country.
