He is currently pursuing a Master of Business Administration degree from the F.W. Olin School of Business at Babson College.  

Dr. Weiss is a Board-certified Psychiatrist who has dedicated his career to improving the quality and safety of mental health care through clinical quality improvement, translational research, and the education of patients, families, students, and fellow clinicians.  As the Director of Quality Management within the MGH Department of Psychiatry he is currently charged with leading this top-ranked academic program in an introspective effort of continuous process improvement and outcomes measurement.  In addition to this formal role, Dr. Weiss serves on a number of key committees dedicated to healthcare quality and safety at the departmental, hospital, and Partners-wide levels.  He is a member of the American Psychiatric Association, the American Society for Quality, and the American College of Physician Executives.
Dr. Weiss has a strong interest in translational medical science, and is currently the Associate Director of Health Services Research for Partners Psychiatry and Mental Health.  In this role he is studying the delivery of mental health care at the patient, clinic, and systems level, with an eye toward the degree of integration of evidence-based approaches.  His earlier scientific work focused on the use of brain imaging technology (including structural and functional magnetic resonance imaging) to better understand the underlying neurobiology responsible for the memory abnormalities seen in patients with schizophrenia.  Dr. Weiss has published in the leading journals in psychiatric neuroscience, and has served as a reviewer for over a dozen major publications in psychiatry, neuroimaging, and cognitive psychology.  He is a recipient of Young Investigator Awards from both NARSAD and the International Congress on Schizophrenia Research.  He was also awarded a 2004 Excellence in Teaching Award from Harvard Medical School.
