Travis Austin graduated from Brigham Young University with a BA and MA in English Literature. He went on to get his MD from the University of Arizona College Of Medicine. He also has his MPH from the Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice. He completed his Emergency Medicine Residency, Palliative Care Fellowship and Leadership Preventative Medicine Residency at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. Dr. Austin’s practice philosophy is “to focus on the whole person, to meet people where they are, and to support patients and families in living as well as they can despite the challenges of a serious illness. I want to use my medical expertise alongside patients’ own experiences, lives, and values to craft a plan of care that they will own and implement. In palliative care, we generally use a multidisciplinary team, so I’m used to working as a team to better use the expertise of people from other fields like social worker, nurses, and chaplains.
