• After completing her doctorate, Dr. Zinski spent six years in the UAB Division of Infectious Diseases investigating the impact of behavioral interventions on patient self-care behaviors, including screening and retention in care.

    In 2015, Dr. Zinski was recruited by the Department of Medical Education to advance educational research and program evaluation for the School of Medicine, and in 2017 she was named Director of Educational Research, Evaluation, and Assessment. Her aims include fostering teaching and assessment, and improving messaging about learner progress and competency. Her current research explores grade validity and reliability, communication tactics, and methods for relevant-time feedback toward improved learning.
