Sean Tackett, MD, MPH

Director of Research; Faculty Advisor

Sean Tackett (MD, MPH) is a General Internist at Johns Hopkins, Bayview Medical Center and Research Director for Osmosis. His career aspiration is to contribute to improvements in the quality of health professional education internationally. Dr. Tackett completed his residency and a fellowship in Internal Medicine at Johns Hopkins. He was awarded his MD from the University of Pittsburgh, School of Medicine and graduated from Notre Dame University, magna cum laude with a BS in Biochemistry. As a member of the faculty at Johns Hopkins, he has published scholarship related to international medical school accreditation and medical student learning environments. Clinically, he practices hospital medicine and attends on inpatient medical teaching services. Alongside Osmosis, Dr. Tackett works with students and faculty to develop research projects that advance the science of education in the health professions. Topics include how new technologies can make learning more efficient and how videos impact health professional learning around the world. Traveling and eating are his favorite pastimes, especially when his wife and two boys can join—and when visits to family in Pittsburgh and Ahmedabad can be arranged.
