Dr. Barnett was born in Paducah, Kentucky but moved to Virginia as a child. He graduated with a degree in Engineering Science and Biomedical Engineering from the University of Virginia in 2002.

He completed a year as Chief Resident of Med-Peds in 2010 before moving to Pittsburgh for fellowship training in Hospice & Palliative Medicine at UPMC.
