Biography

Joseph Watson, MD, is currently completing a Fellowship in Pulmonary/Critical Care Medicine at UVM Medical Center. Dr. Watson is board certified in Internal Medicine and will be working with the Hospital Medicine team here at Rutland Regional.

Originally from Georgia, Dr. Watson began his medical career as a nurse before earning his Doctor of Medicine. Providing medical care in rural areas is critical, and he’s happy to be working in a community hospital. Dr. Watson understands that navigating health care is hard, and it’s important to him to work with his patients on making informed decisions.

Compassionate bedside care and shared decision-making is integral to my practice. My goal is to help patients understand their health problems and then navigate a complex medical system with a plan that is focused on each patient’s unique goals and wishes.

A travel enthusiast, Dr. Watson enjoys seeing new places, exploring new cultures, and greeting new faces along the way, but he is happy to call New England home
