My name is Dr. Jamie Lee and I am a residency-trained, board-certified Orthopedic Physical Therapist, a Family Nurse Practitioner, and an Emergency Department Registered Nurse. This website is devoted to medical professionals who are interested in discussing current trends in clinical practice and evidence-based research, particularly in the field of physical therapy and nursing. Other healthcare professionals are more than welcome to join the conversation. My passion is inter-professional collaboration between multiple professions, so that we can provide more effective, integrated care for what matters most: our patients. When I’m not writing about healthcare, I’ll be discussing my life journey and what I’ve learned over the course of my career.
I completed my Doctor of Physical Therapy degree from Marquette University, a Master of Science in Nursing from Rush University, and a Post-Master’s Certification in Family Practice at George Washington University. I am one of only a few clinicians who is licensed in all three professions. Having experience in each discipline gives me a unique vantage point to provide exceptional care across the lifespan. I am truly honored to be a part of some of the greatest professions in the world.
I currently work in primary care as a nurse practitioner and physical therapist. I absolutely love my job and my colleagues. Additionally, I continue to be involved in academia part-time and hold faculty positions at Marquette University, Baylor University, and South College’s DPT program. My main responsibilities include teaching about pharmacology and primary care physical therapy.
If you happen to stumble across this blog, my hope is that we will both learn something new and translate it to clinical practice!
