Rose Ann Devlin
Earning her Ph.D. in economics from the University of Toronto, Rose Anne Devlin has been a professor in the Department of Economics, University of Ottawa, since 1991. She chaired the department from 2002 to 2008, and is currently the vice-dean of research for the Faculty of Social Sciences. Professor Devlin has a long-standing interest in the economics of health, and has published work on a broad range of topics, including: the incentive effects of physician remuneration schemes, the structure of primary-care practices (including decisions to collaborate with other health-care professionals), and how supplemental insurance affects health care usage. Recently, she has been working on issues associated with accessing regular primary care physicians and the role of social supports. Most of professor Devlin’s research is empirical in nature, although she has contributed to several theoretical models. She regularly supervises graduate students interested in the economics of health.
