Joy Melnikow is Director of the Center for Healthcare Policy and Research and Professor of Family and Community Medicine at the University of California, Davis. She received her MD degree from the University of California, San Francisco, her MPH degree in Epidemiology from UC Berkeley, and completed her family practice residency training at the University of Massachusetts in 1987. She worked for the Indian Health Service on the Navajo reservation and then was on the faculty at MetroHealth/Case Western Reserve University for four years before joining the Department of Family and Community Medicine at UC Davis in 1992.

Her research focuses on cancer screening and prevention in women, patient preferences, cost effectiveness and value in healthcare, and how evidence is used to formulate health policy. She leads an AHRQ-funded post-doctoral training program in quality, safety, and
comparative effectiveness research methods. She was a member of the US Preventive Services Task Force from 2009-12, and was appointed by Governor Brown to the Let’s Get Healthy California Task Force in 2012. She was awarded the UC Davis School of
