About Me

Dr. Zierler’s research explores the relationships between the delivery of health care and outcomes—at both the patient and system level. Her primary appointment is in the School of Nursing at the University of Washington, but she holds three adjunct appointments – two in the School of Medicine and one in the School of Public Health. Currently, Dr. Zierler is Co-PI on a Josiah Macy funded grant with Dr. Les Hall, to develop a national train-the-trainer faculty development program for interprofessional education and collaborative practice. She also leads two HRSA training grants - one focusing on technology enhanced interprofessional education for advanced practice students and the second focused on interprofessional collaborative practice for advanced heart failure patients at UW’s Regional Heart Center.  Dr. Zierler is the Co-Director for the UW Center for Health Sciences Interprofessional Education, Practice and Research and Director of Faculty Development for the UW Institute for Simulation and Interprofessional Studies (ISIS) in the School of Medicine.  Dr. Zierler is a Board Member and Chair of the American Interprofessional Health Collaborative, and a member of the IOM Global Forum on Innovation in Health Professions Education.
