Corrie Whitmore
Assistant Professor
Div. of Population Health Sciences
PSB STE 206, Room 206G


Dr. Whitmore is a lifelong Alaskan who returned to the state after completing an M.S. in Industrial and Organizational Psychology and Ph.D. in Developmental Psychology at Virginia Tech—to help Alaska "grow our own" workforce. Her current research interests center around the role of trust in a patient-provider relationship, interventions to support families of young children in rural Alaska, and effective teaching in the Health Science classroom. Dr. Whitmore's teaching invites story into the health policy classroom, partners evaluation students with community programs where they can apply their learning to support operations, and introduces students to what public health looks like in Alaska. Outside of work, you often can find Corrie out on the trails hiking or skiing slowly, with two young boys and an old dog.
