Dr. Brian P. Hinote serves as the coordinator and liaison for the Health Care Informatics concentration of MTSU's MSPS program. Before arriving at MTSU in 2007, Dr. Hinote earned his doctorate in sociology from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, specializing in health and medicine. Since then, he has compiled an impressive record of leadership, teaching, research, and service at MTSU and in his respective fields of study. In addition to clinical and research experience in areas as diverse as pediatrics, neurology, and cell biology, Dr. Hinote's interdisciplinary work appears in multiple books and peer-reviewed journals in social science, nursing, and medicine. With previous research stretching across multiple continents, his most recent work focuses on the various ways that social and behavioral science perspectives intersect and inform health care delivery and policy, clinical practice, and the work of various health professions. This line of inquiry has culminated in his latest book project, set for publication in 2016 (Rowman & Littlefield).

As a researcher and experienced educator, Dr. Hinote possesses valuable expertise working with students in various health fields, as well as health professionals already in the workforce. He is a recognized expert in academia, in law, and in business, and has a demonstrated record of leadership and collaboration across our university and community, and beyond. Dr. Hinote is also a graduate of Vanderbilt University's Peabody Institute in Higher Education Management, and has served as a university administration fellow in the Office of the Provost at Tennessee Technological University. He is an active member of the Graduate and Honors Faculties at MTSU, and is an officer in the Faculty Senate and a member of its Steering and Liaison Committees. Dr. Hinote has mentored many students from diverse backgrounds, and has presented or published papers with several of them. He is an experienced mentor and consultant, both on and off campus, and his research has been funded by multiple university grant and national research awards. His current research, with colleagues from multiple health and social science disciplines, is funded by the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health.
