Dr. Marty Sexton serves the College of Nursing as the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs, Department Chair, and Director of the LRC, Simulation and Interprofessional Education. Dr. Sexton received her PhD in Higher Education from UT with a focus on interprofessional education; specifically conflict within interprofessional healthcare teams. Dr. Sexton has had the opportunity to speak and publish on the importance of interprofessional education and serve on national committees focused on interprofessional collaborative practice. In addition, she works collaboratively with a team of experts from UT who research and educate students on life-threatening healthcare issues that require an interprofessional approach such as emergent evacuations, active shooter awareness, and hemorrhage control.
