Prior to moving to Stanford, Dr. Braddock was an Associate Professor in the University of Washington School of Medicine, where he was also Director of the Bioethics Education Project, an initiative to expand and integrate more ethics education into the curriculum.

Most notably, he developed an assessment scale of the quality of informed decision making in clinical practice, using it to show that physicians rarely involve patients in routine yet important clinical decisions. Results of this widely cited work have been published in JAMA, Journal of General Internal Medicine, Journal of Clinical Ethics, and the American Journal of Medicine, as well as a book chapter on Informed Consent. Dr. Braddock is recognized as a national expert on informed decision making and doctor-patient communication, having given numerous invited lectures on informed decision making, as well as workshops at national meetings, and is frequently interviewed for the print, radio, and television media.
