Sharon Moayeri joined CHP/PCOR in July 2005 to participate in the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality's Fellowship in Health Care Research and Policy. A board-certified obstetrician/gynecologist, she recently completed a fellowship in reproductive endocrinology and infertility at Stanford. She is interested in new technologies in obstetrics/gynecology, such as screening embryos for genetic abnormalities, and in the health policy implications of multiple gestation pregnancies resulting from assisted reproductive technologies.
Moayeri has previously served as a research consultant for pharmaceutical trials at a private firm, and as a research associate for studies on memory and Alzheimer's disease, and on mental health services for Vietnamese family caregivers, both at the University of California-Irvine. Her honors include a Best Teaching Resident Award, a Senior Medical Student Humanitarian Award from UC-Irvine, and a Health Policy Fellowship Award from the American Medical Student Association.
She received her undergraduate degrees in biological and cognitive science from the University of California-Irvine; an MPH from the University of California-Los Angeles; and an MD from UC-Irvine, where she also completed a residency in obstetrics and gynecology, serving as chief resident in 2003-2004.
