Jane Muir PhD, APRN, FNP-BC is a T32 post-doctoral research fellow in the Center for Health Outcomes and Policy Research and a fellow in the National Clinician Scholars Program. Dr. Muir’s research focuses on the intersection between nursing resources, emergency department patient outcomes, and health care value. Her pre-doctoral dissertation work used Markov modeling and ethnography to explore hospital nurse burnout costs under the mentorship of Dr. Jessica-Keim Malpass at the University of Virginia. Dr. Muir worked clinically as an emergency department/trauma nurse, which inspired her research interests related to protocol-driven patient care, clinician burnout, medical overuse, decision analysis, and costs of health care delivery. She is passionate about improving work environments for clinicians to deliver equitable, cost-effective patient care.

Dr. Muir earned her undergraduate degree in Nursing and Spanish Language (2016), Masters of Science (2022), and PhD (2021) at the University of Virginia.
