  Dr. Dale A. Matthews

Dr. Matthews practices general internal medicine in Washington, DC and teaches at Georgetown University School of Medicine. He conducts research and lectures nationally and internationally on the doctor-patient relationship and the psychological and spiritual dimensions of medicine, including the role of faith, religion, and prayer in clinical care and healing. He is the author of The Faith Factor: Proof of the Healing Power of Prayer (Viking, 1998).
Dr. Matthews is a cum laude graduate of Princeton University (1976), at which he majored in Romance Languages with a special concentration in European Civilization. He was graduated from Duke University School of Medicine in 1980, and completed his internship and residency in internal medicine at the University of Connecticut in Farmington in 1983. In the same year, he was named as a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Clinical Scholar at Yale University School of Medicine. At Yale, he studied clinical epidemiology and began his research career by examining patients' perceptions of physician performance in the hospital and outpatient setting.
He joined the faculty of the University of Connecticut School of Medicine in Farmington in 1985 as an Assistant Professor of Medicine. He was a co-founder of the Connecticut Chronic Fatigue Study, one of the first major longitudinal studies of this perplexing condition. In 1989, he was named the George Morris Piersol Teaching and Research Scholar of the American College of Physicians.
In 1991, he accepted a position as Chief of Internal Medicine at the Minirth-Meier and Byrd Clinic in Arlington, VA. This position offered him an opportunity to integrate his religious faith with his skills in internal medicine and psychiatry and to develop his research interest in the spiritual aspects of medicine.
In 1993, he joined the faculty of Georgetown University School of Medicine in the Division of General Internal Medicine, where he continued to expand his clinical, teaching, and research interests. In the same year, he was named as a Fellow of the American College of Physicians. In 1997, he received an Exemplary Paper in Humility Theology Award from the John Templeton Foundation.
Dr. Matthews is also the author of a four-volume research work, The Faith Factor: An Annotated Bibliography of Clinical Research on Spiritual Subjects; three documentaries: Body, Mind, and Spirit, Shall We Pray?, and Healing Hands; a annotated, videotaped lecture on religion and medicine, The Faith Factor: Is Religion Good for Your Health?; a teaching videotape on the doctor-patient relationship, Bedside Manners; and over 65 peer-reviewed scientific articles, book chapters, and other publications.
