Dr. Bess Sirmon-Taylor has been a member of the Concussion Management Clinic (CMC) team since 2007, and her research interests have primarily focused on legislation and policy implementation related to concussion management at the state and federal level. In 2013, she was appointed as Associate Dean of the Graduate School at UTEP on a half-time basis, and her scholarly interests now include questions related to patterns in student funding for graduate education, dual credit curricula for high school teachers providing college-level coursework, models of mentoring and leadership, and access to graduate education for under-represented minority students. One of her current areas of inquiry deals with models of ethics education curriculum in graduate clinical education.

In the past eleven years, Dr. Sirmon-Taylor has presented and published on a range of topics including etiology, epidemiology, and prevention of concussion, legislation and policy, and ethics education.
