Bio

Trained in internal medicine and preventive medicine, Dr. Liebschutz is a primary care physician, substance use researcher, educator, and administrator. Her research agenda focuses on the intersection of substance use, violence, and mental health within the practice of general medical care, with particular focus on opioid prescribing for chronic pain and treatment of opioid use disorders in general medical settings. She directs a large interdisciplinary research training postdoctoral fellowship program for primary care-trained physicians. She serves as Associate Chief for the Section of General Internal Medicine, and the Wellness Director for the Medical-Dental Staff at an academic safety-net hospital. She has mentored dozens of trainees from undergraduates to junior faculty level on research in addiction medicine. She is a national lecturer and educator on opioid prescribing, and the developer of the website, www.mytopcare.org, a resource for opioid prescribing in the primary care setting. She has been a certified buprenorphine prescriber since 2006, managing an active panel of opioid-dependent patients within her primary care practice. Dr. Liebschutz has contributed her expertise in primary care treatment of pain, injection drug use, addiction, and safe prescribing of opioids as Principal Investigator and Co-Investigator on various NIH-funded randomized controlled trials. Her clinical experience, in conjunction with national work on implementing cutting-edge strategies for opioid management in general medical settings, make her well-suited to serve on this expert panel.
