    Collapse overview
    Dr. Simonetti earned his Medical Degree from the Ohio State University in 2008 and completed his training in Internal Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh prior to serving as Chief Medical Resident from 2011-2012. He then moved to Seattle where he completed an NRSA health services research fellowship, worked as a senior research fellow at the Harborview Injury Prevention & Research Center at the University of Washington and the VA’s Patient Aligned Care Team National Demonstration Lab, and earned his Masters of Public Health degree from the University of Washington School of Public Health.

    Currently, he is an internal medicine physician practicing within the VA Eastern Colorado Healthcare System. He has research appointments within the VA Rocky Mountain Mental Illness Research, Education and Clinical Center for Suicide Prevention and the Denver-Seattle Center for Veteran-Centered and Value-Driven Care.

    Dr. Simonetti’s research focuses on reducing the burden of intentional and unintentional firearm injuries nationally. He joined the VA to adapt his expertise in firearm injury prevention from pediatric injury prevention to system-level strategies aiming to mitigate the high burden of suicide, particularly firearm-related suicide, among U.S. Veterans. His current focus is on creating infrastructure for stakeholder engagement in firearm-related research and developing Veteran-centered approaches to facilitating lethal means safety as a suicide prevention strategy.
