Anthony R. Artino, Jr., is Associate Professor of Preventive Medicine and Biometrics at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USU). He holds a joint appointment in the Department of Medicine. Dr. Artino's doctoral training is in educational psychology, with an emphasis in cognition and instruction. As an Associate Professor, he mentors graduate students and teaches in the Master of Health Administration and Policy (MHAP) and Master of Public Health (MPH) degree programs. In addition to his role as an educator, he is the Principal Investigator (or Associate Investigator) on several funded research projects totaling more than $3.3 million and is the co-Director of the School of Medicine's Long-Term Career Outcome Study. As a researcher, Dr. Artino collaborates with a team of scientists trained in a variety of academic disciplines, including psychology, epidemiology, physiology, medicine, and English. This interdisciplinary team studies various aspects of human motivation, learning, and performance across the medical education continuum and into clinical practice. As part of this program of research, Dr. Artino employs social-cognitive views of motivation, emotion, and self-regulation to better understand how undergraduate medical students, residents, and practicing physicians learn in various contexts. In his most recent work, Dr. Artino and his colleagues have developed and are collecting validity evidence for a theory-driven diagnostic and remediation assessment methodology designed to help struggling medical students develop basic competence in clinical reasoning.

Dr. Artino is an editorial board member of five peer-reviewed journals, including Advances in Health Sciences Education and the Journal of Graduate Medical Education, and he publishes his work in a variety of national and international outlets, including Academic Medicine, Medical Education, Advances in Health Sciences Education, Medical Teacher, Aviation, Space, and Environmental Medicine, and Military Medicine. He has published more than 95 scientific articles and presents regularly at national and international conferences, including annual meetings of the American Educational Research Association, the American Psychological Association, the Association of American Medical Colleges, and the Association for Medical Education in Europe.

Dr. Artino has been honored for his early career contributions with several international awards, including the Arthur Melton Early Career Award from Division 19 (Military Psychology) of the American Psychological Association and the Established Investigator Award from Division I (Education in the Professions) of the American Educational Research Association.
