David M. Frankford is Professor of Law at Rutgers Law School; Professor at the Rutgers Institute for Health, Health Care Policy and Aging Research in New Brunswick; and Faculty Director at Camden of the Rutgers Center for State Health Policy. He has been a long-time editor of Journal of Health Politics, Policy and Law, having served as book review, associate editor and the editor of “Behind the Jargon,” a Special Section.

Professor Frankford’s writings have 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 state rate setting, 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, issues of insurance coverage, and numerous other issues in health care financing. With Sara Rosenbaum, he is the author of the second edition of Law and the American Health Care System.

He has been involved in many grants to the Rutgers Center for State Health Policy, offering analysis on such topics as state pharmacy assistance programs and hospital responses to mandatory medical error reporting. He also has participated in bioethics projects at The Hastings Center and the Center for Bioethics at the University of Pennsylvania. Currently his primary research interests concern the reconstitution of professionalism as the normative integration of professions and community, and the comparison of secular and religious bioethics regarding such issues as the new genetics.
