Tyler Tate, MD, Assistant Professor of Pediatrics, Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU). Dr. Tate is a pediatric palliative physician, ethicist, writer, and researcher at OHSU. He serves as an associate director of the OHSU Center for Ethics in Health Care and founding director of the Oregon Bioethics and Humanities Colloquium speaker series. Dr. Tate has written extensively about suffering and decision-making in the palliative context, with a special focus on promoting just and compassionate health care for people with physical and intellectual disabilities. His academic work has been published in numerous journals, including the Hastings Center Report, Pediatrics, and the Journal of Palliative Medicine. Dr. Tate’s favorite thing about palliative medicine is that he often gets to sit down with patients and their families, listen to their stories, and then accompany them along their illness journeys. He deeply values the relationships that he is able to build through his work. Beginning in June 2024, Dr. Tate will be moving to Stanford University where he will be a clinical associate professor in the department of pediatrics in the new Division of Quality of Life and Pediatric Palliative Care.
