    About Me

    Dr. Brooke Dorsey Holliman, PhD

    Assistant Professor, University of Colorado School of Medicine

    Director of Education and Training, Qualitative & Mixed Methods Research Core

    Adult & Child Consortium for Health Outcomes Research & Delivery Science

    I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Family Medicine in the School of Medicine at the University of Colorado Denver/Anschutz Medical Campus. I specialize in the use of qualitative and mixed methods in health services research, and I am skilled at health policy, community engagement, and program evaluation. My research focuses on health disparities and inequalities due to socioeconomic status, race/ethnicity, and social and structural factors. Currently, my work is aimed at addressing disparities in care experienced by vulnerable and marginalized populations, with a particular emphasis on Black maternal health equity and minority individuals living with disabilities. Prior to joining the University of Colorado, I was the founding Director of the Qualitative Core for the Rocky Mountain Mental Illness Research Education and Clinical Center (MIRECC) at the Rocky Mountain Regional VA Medical Center. In addition, I am a proud Veteran of the United States Army.


    Education: B.A. in Psychology from North Carolina Central University • M.A. in Forensic Psychology from the University of Denver • Ph.D. in Health and Behavioral Sciences from the University of Colorado Denver

    Qualitative Expertise

    As a qualitative methodologist, I conduct and consult on health services and behavioral health research. I train researchers and practitioners in qualitative methods and analysis, culturally effective research, and community​-engaged research. Methods that I regularly employ include: ethnography, grounded theory, and phenomenology.
