Jeanne-Marie Guise, MD, MPH


Jeanne-Marie Guise, M.D., M.P.H., is Professor with the Departments of Obstetrics & Gynecology, Emergency Medicine, Medical Informatics & Clinical Epidemiology at the Oregon Health & Science University and the OHSU-PSU School of Public Health. Deeply dedicated to clinical care, education, and research, she has held institutional leadership positions in all three missions.

 Broadly, Dr Guise’s research interests include evidence-based medicine, clinical informatics, patient safety, and learning health systems. She leads one of 11 nationally recognized Centers of Excellence and K12 Career Development Programs in Learning Health System Science together with Dr Lucy Savitz from Kaiser Permanente Northwest and a consortium of health systems, academic institutions, community organizations, policymakers, and citizens. She is Associate Director of the US Cochrane West and Director of the Scientific Resource Center for the US Agency for Healthcare Research & Quality (AHRQ)’s Evidence-based Practice Centers (EPC) program.

 She is the founding director of the State Obstetric, Pediatric Research Collaboration (STORC) and the Children’s Safety Initiative (CSI), an interdisciplinary consortium of investigators dedicated to improving the health and safety of women and children. Her research includes development of one of the first electronic health records in maternity care with an accompanying investigation into the incremental value of data integration; developing and validating of the Clinical Teamwork Scale (CTS™), a tool that is used around the world to measure teamwork in health care; and accelerating the translation of evidence and emerging science into practice.

 As a physician scientist and dedicated mentor, she leads the Dean’s Physician Scientist Program for the OHSU School of Medicine and serves as Principal Investigator of the NIH Building Interdisciplinary Research Careers in Women’s Health BIRCWH, AHRQ Patient Centered Comparative Effectiveness Research, and AHRQ-PCORI Learning Health Systems K12 programs.

Dr. Guise received her medical degree from the University of Washington and completed residency training in Obstetrics and Gynecology from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She attended the Robert Wood Johnson Core Curriculum and received a Master’s degree in Public Health (MPH) in Epidemiology from the University of North Carolina as a National Research Service Award Primary Care Research fellow and she is a graduate of the Executive Leadership in Academic Medicine (ELAM) program.
