Jasminka Criley, MD, FACP, FHM, is Associate Clinical Professor of Medicine at UCLA. Throughout her medical, research and teaching career, she held a number of positions from Johns Hopkins, Vanderbilt, Stanford and UCLA.
She published the first multi-center study of cardiac examination proficiency for all levels of medical training, from medical students to full-time university faculty, followed by several studies that evaluated the efficacy of using virtual patients to improve these examination skills.
In addition to teaching and clinical care, Dr. Criley has been advisor and mentor to over 200 residents, medical students and undergraduate students. She served on multiple local, regional and national committees.
With her passion for teaching and mentorship, Dr. Criley co-founded Indelible Learning, a company that uses technology to place students in the shoes of health and STEM professionals, immersing them with real-world scenarios, and letting them work with actual data to drive decisions.
That experience was a revelation: she clearly saw the progression from curiosity in kindergarten to a successful career in research science. As a physician specializing in hospital medicine, she also saw the connection between health habits developed early in childhood to chronic disease leading to hospitalization as an adult.
