Ileen Getz (7 August, 1961 – 4 August, 2005) was an American actress best known for her recurring role as Dr. Judith Draper in the television sitcom 3rd Rock from the Sun, from 1996-2001.

Getz was born in Bristol, Pennsylvania. After graduating from Northwestern University, she joined the Econo-Art Theatre Company and Practical Theatre Company, both in Chicago, Illinois.

She began her television work in 1995, with appearances on shows such as Law & Order and Seinfeld. In 1996, she became a recurring cast member on 3rd Rock from the Sun, playing a professor of women's studies with no personality.
