 Research Expertise & Professional Interests
Joanne Wilkinson, MD, MSc joined the department’s faculty in 2006. She is a graduate of Brown University (AB, ’90), Brown University Medical School (MD, ’95) and the Brown/Memorial Hospital family medicine residency (’98). She worked for 6 years in a variety of private practice settings in Rhode Island and was awarded the STFM Resident Teacher Award (’98), the Parke-Davis Teacher Development Award (’00) and the Preceptor of the Year Award (’01) from the Brown family medicine residency. From 2004 to 2006 she was an academic fellow at Boston University and received an MSc in Epidemiology from the BU School of Public Health.

Since joining the faculty, she has focused her research on the improvement of primary care quality indicators for adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, specifically cancer screening. She has received funding from the American Cancer Society, the American Academy of Family Physicians, the National Cancer Institute and the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). She has a career development award from the National Cancer Institute focused on barriers to mammography for women with intellectual disabilities and funding from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) for a small conference dedicated to the development of a research agenda and research methodology focused on issues of screening and prevention for adults with intellectual disabilities. The studies funded by these awards employ mixed methods to explore the determinants of health behavior in individuals with cognitive disabilities. She has a secondary appointment as Assistant Professor in the Department of Community Health Sciences at the BU School of Public Health. In 2011, she was awarded the Early Career Award by the American Academy of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. In 2012 she completed a visiting scholar rotation at the Robert Graham Center in Washington, DC, studying health policy implications of emergency room utilization by patients with disabilities. Since 2012 she has been the Research Director in the Department of Family Medicine and Fellowship Director for the Family Medicine Academic Fellowship.
