Alyssa Browne, PhD 

I am a Senior Research Analyst at the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) studying issues related to the biomedical workforce, both within and outside of academic medicine. 

In my independent research, I consider how inequality manifests within medical training to shape the professional outcomes of medical students and resident physicians using a combination of in-depth interview data and secondary survey data.

In other work, I study dimensions of career inequality beyond the medical context, including perceptions of diversity hiring initiatives among hiring decision-makers.  

Prior to obtaining my PhD, I spent four years working as a research assistant at the Guttmacher Institute, a reproductive health research organization, where I worked on a variety of global and domestic research projects. I received a B.S. in Development Sociology from Cornell University in 2012, with a minor in Global Health.
