Curtis completed his MD and PhD as part of the Vanderbilt University Medical Scientist Training Program. During graduate school, he worked with Amy S. Major to study the pathogenesis of fatty liver disease and diabetes in a mouse model of systemic lupus erythematosus. After medical school, he stayed at Vanderbilt for his internal medicine residency and gastroenterology fellowship in the Harrison Society. His current research focuses on the mechanisms that give rise to fatty liver disease and cirrhosis in people living with HIV.
