Patient Outcomes Research Advisor

Jane R. Schubart, PhD, MS, MBA — Associate Professor in the Departments of Surgery, Medicine, and Public Health Sciences, Penn State College of Medicine, Hershey, Pennsylvania. I am an educator and researcher in health services and outcomes and comparative effectiveness research, with training in
biostatistics, epidemiology, and biomedical informatics. I am a member of the Graduate Faculty at Pennsylvania State University and teach graduate level courses in public health policy, health care system organization and delivery, and quality of care. I have worked with scientific collaborators across departments and schools at Penn State University and the University of Virginia, mentoring many medical students, residents, and junior faculty each year in a wide range of research projects. The progression of my research has increasingly focused on rare diseases and patient-centered outcomes— that is, the investigation of health outcomes that matter most to patients. Since 2015, I have been working on research projects related to the Ehlers-Danlos syndromes. I received my undergraduate education at Emory University in Finance, and my graduate education at the University of Virginia (Master of Science in Clinical Research, and Ph.D. in Education).
