Dr. Everett’s current research initiatives focus on healthcare team design and the impact on patient, provider, and organizational outcomes.

Her work has been published in a variety of journals including Health Affairs, Journal of Rural Health , Medical Care Research and Review, and BMC Family Practice. She completed the first comparative effectiveness study of primary care PAs and NPs and has become the first PA faculty in the US to receive grant funding from the National Institutes of Health.
