Tiffany Kindratt, PhD, MPH, is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Physician Assistant Studies in the School of Health Professions. She serves as Director of Research for the PA program and mentors PA students, as well as other medical learners, on how to conduct research projects. 

The overarching goal of her program of research is to reduce health disparities and improve communication between health care providers and their patients through medical and health sciences education, community-based participatory research, and national survey methodologies. She is interested in exploring how different qualities and modes of patient-provider communication are associated with health outcomes across the lifespan. Exploring these factors will help to determine the best ways to intervene on the patient, provider, and population levels. Her contributions to science mainly stem from projects focused on addressing health disparities, evaluating curriculum, and providing mentorship.
