Excellence in Teaching, 2022

Anne Jamieson

Anne Jamieson teaches a wide range of health management and policy courses, including an introductory course, Survey of U.S. Health Care Systems and the senior level courses, Healthcare Ethics and Law and Healthcare Management.

Across all these classes, a common theme emerges from her course evaluations: Jamieson has a significant, positive and enduring impact on students. Each semester, they write that they learned more in her class than in any other. They also report that she is the person who had the greatest impact on their education.

“I remember being taken aback by the breadth of Dr. Jamieson’s experience,” wrote one student, who took a 400-level U.S. Health Care course with Jamieson. “In healthcare, she’s done it all. Not only did we learn about the impact of social, political, economic, ethical, professional, legal and technological forces on health care systems, but she taught us how to understand our own health insurance plan coverage, write advance directives and understand current policy issues. It was that class that changed my perspective on my degree, as well as my purpose as a healthcare professional.”

Jamieson is devoted to giving a high degree of attention and care to her courses and students. She continues to innovate her approach to teaching, using real word simulations that change each class and get progressively more challenging. She approaches each semester thinking about how best to help students learn the tools to maneuver successfully within an increasingly complex healthcare industry.
