Michael Green M.D., M.S. is a physician and professor of humanities and medicine at the Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center.  At this academic medical center, which aims to provide quality medical care to patients and a quality education to medical students, he also serves as the Chair of the Hospital Ethics Committee and the Director of the Program in Bioethics.  He divides his time between training medical students and residents, treating patients and researching bioethics.

Green has published many articles which can be accessed through pubmed.gov and is the co-author of a recent paper published in the BMJ on Comics and Medicine.  His interest in comics, which led him to co-author this article, also led Green to help organize two international Comics and Medicine conferences and to teach a comics and medicine course to medical students at the Hershey Medical Center.

Green attended medical school at the University of Illinois and went on to complete residency in internal medicine at Northwestern University.  He was a fellow of clinical medical ethics at Chicago’s Pritzker School of Medicine in 1993 and a fellow of general internal medicine at the University of Wisconsin in 1995.  He now focuses on helping patients through the employment of interactive computer-based decision aids.
