Assistant Professor, University of California San Francisco
Represented: Researchers

James Harrison is an Assistant Professor and researcher in the Division of Hospital Medicine at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF). His work in patient-centered outcomes research focuses on improving how care is delivered to people who are hospitalized. This work includes seeking to speed the uptake and use of evidence-based information and interventions in real-world settings.

Harrison is an active PCORI ambassador and is leading patient stakeholder engagement efforts within a large national hospital medicine research collaborative. This work has added a richness and patient-centeredness that has completely changed how he approaches his own research work. He hopes to normalize patient stakeholder engagement in research and increase its practice more broadly within the research community.

At UCSF he also jointly leads a Patient & Family Advisory Council, working with patients and their families who have been admitted to the inpatient medicine service. He received an MPH from the University of New South Wales and a PhD from the University of Sydney in Australia.

Harrison served as a member of the Advisory Panel on Patient Engagement from September 2018 to September 2021.
