Selina Mohammed, PhD, MPH, RN
Professor and Associate Dean
Selina Mohammed holds a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Cincinnati, Master of Science in Nursing from the University of Michigan, Master of Public Health from the University of Washington, and Doctor of Philosophy in Nursing Science from the University of Washington. She has clinical training as a nurse and a family nurse practitioner, and prior to coming into academia, worked predominantly with underserved populations. Selina completed a 2-year postdoctoral fellowship in Women’s Health Interdisciplinary Training from the University of Michigan, and came to University of Washington Bothell in 2006. She is currently the Associate Dean for the School of Nursing and Health Studies.
Selina’s scholarship centers on social justice and the effects of social determinants of health. She examines the impact of racialized discrimination and other structural disadvantages on health, and uses critical theories to explore how historical, sociocultural, political, and economic contexts contribute to health inequities, particularly for American Indians. Selina has a background in using qualitative methodologies, and experience with survey and randomized control trial conceptualization, design, and implementation. She also has experience using community-based participatory research to develop strong relationships with communities, and draw on community strengths and resources to create relevant interventions that will best meet their needs.
