Dr. John Kaufman, professor, joined the Dotter Institute in July 2000. A graduate of Boston University School of Medicine in 1982, he was an intern in surgery at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, and then a general medical officer in the U.S. Indian Health Service. He then began training in diagnostic radiology and vascular/interventional radiology at the former Boston University Medical Center and Boston City Hospitals (now known as the Boston Medical Center). At the completion of his training, he joined the section of vascular radiology at the Massachusetts General Hospital, where he worked until becoming a member of the Dotter Institute.

Kaufman is interested in vascular interventions and the development of new techniques and devices. Most recently, he has worked on aortic stent grafts and retrievable vena cava filters. He has participated in laboratory and clinical research, and is involved at a national level in related clinical trials. His other areas of interest include non-invasive vascular imaging with magnetic resonance (MRA) and computed tomography (CTA), gynecologic vascular interventions such as uterine fibroid and ovarian vein embolization, and long-term central venous access. In addition to clinical work, Kaufman has published peer-reviewed articles, reviewed articles, edited several books, and lectured at local, national, and international meetings. He reviews articles for several journals and is an assistant editor of vascular imaging for the American Journal of Radiology (AJR). He is actively involved in committee work for both the SCVIR and the American Heart Association. Kaufman was awarded a Figley Fellowship in Radiologic Journalism by AJR in 1996, and was elected a fellow of the SCVIR in 1998. He enjoys teaching and was voted "Teacher of the Year" by the radiology residents at Massachusetts General Hospital in 1995.

Out of the hospital, Kaufman enjoys spending time with his family, traveling, cross-country skiing and exploring new restaurants. He plans to hike and fly-fish the entire Northwest with his wife and children.
