Jane Liebschutz, MD, MPH
I’m the chief of the Division of General Internal Medicine at University of Pittsburgh, where I am also a visiting professor of medicine and the director of the Center for Research on Health Care. I’m a primary care internist who also practices addiction medicine, and I’ve cared for hundreds of patients with substance use disorders. My clinical practice has focused on the care of underserved populations. I am particularly interested in caring for patients who have experienced the triad of trauma, pain, and substance misuse. I enjoy employing my Spanish language skills with Latin American immigrants.
I have developed and researched interventions to combat the current crisis in opioid use disorders. Additionally, I have studied violence and its health impacts, and I utilize what I’ve learned in my academic work to help patients with substance use disorders. I often speak about my research and its clinical and professional applications at national and international conferences. My topics have ranged from intimate partner violence and chronic pain management to physician work-life integration.
I have directed a wellness initiative for five years, and some of my research and publications are in the field of burnout and wellness. I hope to continue to develop the data to support interventions to decrease burnout and improve vitality and physician resilience among primary care physicians and academic medical faculty. I received my MD from Harvard, my MPH from Boston University, and my BA from Yale.
