Medicine faculty welcome Jaeger


Dr. Dominic Jaeger has joined the Medical Center faculty as an assistant professor of medicine in the Division of Hospital Medicine. He has particular interests in pharmacotherapy safety, pharmacoeconomics and perioperative medical care.

Although a native of Bern, Switzerland, Jaeger received his formal education entirely in the United States. He attended Emory University as an undergraduate and earned his M.D. at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1990. He completed his internship and residency in primary care internal medicine at the Medical Center Hospital of Vermont (now Fletcher Allen Health Care) from 1990-93.

Jaeger joined the Department of Medicine faculty at the University of Vermont in 1993 as an assistant professor of medicine in the Division of Primary Care Internal Medicine and became an associate professor there in 2003. He was the author of numerous teaching modules for medical students and residents used at the University of Vermont and gave a variety of intramural and regional presentations.

In 2003, he moved to Mississippi and served as an attending hospitalist physician at St. Dominic Hospital until joining the Medical Center. He was medical director of the consult service at St. Dominic's since 2009 and was appointed vice chair of the Department of Medicine in 2011. He is a member of the American College of Physicians and Phi Beta Kappa.
