Ralph Horwitz completed his Clinical Scholars program fellowship at Yale University School of Medicine in 1977, and a year later, after finishing his residency, joined the faculty there as assistant professor of medicine and co-director of Yale's Clinical Scholars program. In that capacity, he has helped to train nearly 75 scholars for faculty careers in general medicine and general pediatrics. As a general internist and clinical epidemiologist, his major research emphasis is studying the strategies of clinical care. Much of Horwitz's research program is devoted to developing methodologic techniques that can ensure valid and generalizable answers to relevant clinical questions.
