Areas of Interest

Dr Wilkinson's research focuses on access to reproductive health services for adolescents, in particular-contraception access and unplanned pregnancy prevention.

Dr. Tracey Wilkinson is an assistant professor of pediatrics. She graduated from Vanderbilt University School of Medicine in 2006 and completed her pediatric residency at Brown University/Hasbro Children’s Hospital in Providence, RI. After residency, she pursued additional training through the general pediatrics fellowship at Boston Medical Center/Boston University. As a fellow, she obtained her Masters in Public Health and began conducting research on availability and access to behind-the-counter emergency contraception for adolescents.

After fellowship, she took a position in California at Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles/University of Southern California where she was a primary care pediatrician. In 2015 she accepted a position at Indiana University to focus more on her research. She plans to continue to examine and develop interventions to improve adolescents’ access to contraceptive services from the perspective of a general pediatrician.
