Biographical / historical:

J. Lloyd Michener is the second child of two Quaker activists from Wichita, Kansas. He grew up in Baltimore, Maryland, where he attended a public high school for science and math. He then went to Oberlin College and studied science, sociology, music, and religion. Afterwards, Michener received his MD from Harvard Medical School (1978).While attending medical school, he earned money over the summers by working in the local community as a community organizer and as a research assistant.
After graduation, Michener did his residency at Duke, completing it in 1981. Next he did a fellowship funded by the Kellogg Foundation in change management. Then he became a pre-doc director and worked for several years to launch the clerkship in family medicine. This required site visits all over the state to see how students were doing, as well as sitting in all the classes the medical students took. This led Michener to become part of the medical school curriculum committee, a committee he served on for 20 years.
Michener also served as residency director, fellowship director, and chief of community health before the Division of Family Medicine was created. In 1995, Michener became the Chair for the Department of Community and Family Medicine. He stepped down in 2017 after 22 years in that role.
Michener specializes in Methods of improving health of communities, including identifying opportunities for improvement; engagement with community groups, practices and agencies; development of innovative strategies; and measurement of outcomes.
