Find a Doctor Disclaimer
“Find a Doctor” is operated by Lifespan and includes all physicians who are on the medical staffs of Lifespan-affiliated hospitals, without any charge to them. Selection is based upon your needs and preferences. Search results will first present, in alphabetical order, physicians employed or contracted with Lifespan or its affiliates, followed by an alphabetical listing of physicians who are in Lifespan’s network of affiliated providers. At the end of that initial list, you can access an alphabetical listing of community physicians with privileges at Lifespan hospitals. All physicians in Find a Doctor have the opportunity to have a picture or video posted on the site. Neither the order of physicians, nor the presence or absence of a photo or video, in Find a Doctor is intended to reflect any preference, priority, or recommendation by Lifespan. Find a Doctor search results are also not based on the volume or value of referrals to Lifespan or its affiliates from any listed physician. Users are free to select their physician of choice from among all Lifespan-affiliated medical staff physicians.
Beth Jerskey PhD, PhD
Research Coordinator for the Rhode Island Consortium for Autism Research and Treatment (RI-CART)
Beth Jerskey, PhD joined the faculty at the Bradley Hasbro Children’s Research Center in 2013. Jerskey is the research coordinator for RI-CART, whose goal is to create a statewide registry for all individuals with a diagnosis of autism or autism spectrum disorders. Licensed in clinical psychology, she is also an assistant professor of psychiatry and human behavior at The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University.
Jerskey earned her undergraduate degree at Boston College and her master’s and doctoral degrees at Boston University. She completed her clinical internship at Massachusetts General Hospital and completed a T32 postdoctoral fellowship through The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University department of psychiatry and human behavior clinical psychology training consortium.
Jerskey's most recent research involved the utility of neuroimaging techniques in identifying early biomarkers of disease, in addition to research exploring the subtle neuronal changes either to differentiate patient populations or to track changes over time. A separate line of research involves ethical issues related to research, specifically, the use of surrogate decision makers during the informed consent process.
