Assistant Professor of Clinical Medicine

Cameron Baston


Cameron’s research focuses on medical education, especially around integration of novel technological developments into medical education and medical decision making.  This has leaned heavily on the use of Point of Care Ultrasound (POCUS).  With the PAIR center, he helps apply cost-effectiveness modeling techniques, and works toward tilting the direction of medical care and research toward social justice.   


Cameron did his undergraduate in mechanical engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology before working in automotive engineering, environmental modeling, and plasma physics.  He received his medical degree from Jefferson Medical College and did his residency and chief residency in Internal Medicine at the University of Washington in Seattle.  He came to Penn for his Pulmonary Critical Care Medicine fellowship, Emergency Ultrasound fellowship, and Master of Science in clinical epidemiology. As a fellow he won the department of medicine’s fellow teaching award, and in his first full year on faculty was awarded the Donna McCurdy educator’s award, and the Family Medicine faculty of the year award. He serves on the editorial board for Critical Care Medicine, Chest, and the POCUS Journal. He has an interest in critical care in the resource limited setting and is currently serving as Assistant Program Director for the Pulmonary Critical Care fellowship, and the Director of Clinician Performed Ultrasound for the Department of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania.


Cameron lives in a pink house in West Philly with his wife, two daughters (named for Ella Baker and Audre Lorde), and great Dane.
