David M. Frankford

Professor of Law. Professor Frankford earned his B.A. summa cum laude at Tufts University in 1976 and his J.D. cum laude at the University of Chicago Law School in 1979. A member of Phi Beta Kappa and the Order of the Coif, he was a law clerk for Judge Irving I. Goldberg of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit in 1979-1980, and an associate specializing in antitrust, mass tort litigation, and regulation of broadcasting and telecommunications with the Washington, D.C., firm of Wilmer, Cutler & Pickering from 1980 to 1984. An associate professor at the University of Miami School of Law from 1984 to 1988, Professor Frankford also has been a visiting associate professor at Yeshiva University's Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law and Temple University School of Law. An expert in health law and policy, his primary research interests concern the reconstitution of professionalism as the normative integration of professions and community, and comparison of secular and religious bioethics regarding such issues as the new genetics. He has also focused on the interactions between health services research, health care politics and policy, and the institutions of professions and professionalism. His works include studies of hospital reimbursement, the regulation of fee splitting, the debates concerning privatization and national health insurance, the ideology of professionalism, the role of professionalism in medical education, the role of scientism and economism in health policy, and issues of insurance coverage. He is currently studying the manner in which medical education and practice can be connected institutionally and linked to community institutions, and the manner in which assessment and maintenance of professional competence can be allocated among public and private authority, given the growth of new practice organizations and advances in continuing education. He is also studying the manner in which neo-Platonic and Jewish conceptions of "soul" influence bioethical positions. Finally, with coauthor Sara Rosenbaum, he is working on a major revision of Law and the American Health Care System, the leading book in the field. He also is Camden faculty director at the Center for State Health Policy and associate editor of the Journal of Health Politics, Policy and Law. In his other full-time job, Professor Frankford is one of the top amateur cyclists in Pennsylvania in his age group.
