Professor and Chair

Matthias S. F. Rose, MD, PhD, is Chair of the Department of Psychosomatic Medicine at the Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin in Germany, and Associate Professor at the Department of Quantitative Health Sciences at the Medical School of the University of Massachusetts. Dr. Rose has Board Certifications for Internal Medicine, Psychosomatic Medicine and Psychotherapy. His career started at the Medical School of the Charité in Berlin, which is one of largest University Clinics in Europe serving more than 700,000 patients/year. As a clinician and psychotherapist, his studies naturally focused on the clinical relevance of psychological assessments for health and subjective well-being. During his career he received a number of awards, including the Lilly Quality of Life Award, the Heinrich Bauer Award from the North German Diabetes Society, and the Teacher of the Year Award from the University Clinic in Hamburg. His group in Germany was first to publish a comprehensive Item Response Theory (IRT) item bank and a Computer Adaptive Test (CAT) to measure depressive symptoms (D-CAT). He also implemented an electronic Patient-Reported Outcome (ePRO) measurement system that used CATs on Personal Digital Assistants in daily clinical contexts, more than a decade ago. Dr. Rose came to New England in 2004 to join Dr. Ware’s research team as a senior scientist, and got the chance to participate early on in a large NIH roadmap initiative to build one of the most comprehensive Patient-Reported Outcome Measurement Information Systems (PROMIS) today. Since that time, he has been a PI on several NIH grants, including a NIMH study which is using CATs to identify depressive disorders in primary care. Dr. Rose has worked in the field of health outcome research for almost two decades, and continues to work as a clinician.
