Trudie Milner

Courtesy Appointment



Dr. Milner has worked as an applied sociologist in the health care field for the last 20+ years.  She received her Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of Alberta in 1991 and her dissertation involved an evaluation of the Canadian Young Offenders Act which reflected a significant shift in how youth were processed in the criminal justice system. Dr. Milner published and presented her justice-related research for several years after receiving her Ph.D. In the mid-1990s, Dr. Milner moved away from academia to employ her skills as a sociologist by founding and managing a home health care company. She has remained in health care administration ever since. She became the Vice Chair of Finance and Administration for the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the Medical University of South Carolina in 2010.
