Professor Matthew joined the University of Colorado faculty in 2003 as an Associate Professor, teaching Evidence, Health Law I (Health Finance and Administration Law) and Health Law II (Medical Malpractice Litigation and Ethics). In 2004, she became the Law School's Associate Dean of Academic Affairs.
As an Assistant Professor at the University of Virginia, Professor Matthew also taught Advanced Torts, Civil Procedure and Products Liability. At the University of Kentucky, Professor Matthew taught Corporate Transactions in Health Care, as well as two interdisciplinary courses in Bioethics and Medical Malpractice which included law, medical, nursing, pharmacy and public health students studying the law together.
