Lewei (Allison) Lin, MD, MS, is an addiction psychiatrist at the Ann Arbor VA, a Research Investigator at the VA HSR&D Center for Clinical Management Research, and an Assistant Professor at the University of Michigan Department of Psychiatry. Dr. Lin graduated from MIT with a BS in Economics and Chemical Engineering, received her MD from Yale, and completed her psychiatry residency and addiction psychiatry fellowship at University of Michigan, where she also received a MS in Health and Healthcare Research. Dr. Lin's research focuses on understanding gaps in access and quality of substance use disorder treatment in order to inform interventions to improve care delivery and outcomes for Veterans. Her HSR&D Career Development Award focuses on developing and testing a telemedicine model to expand access to medication treatment for patients with opioid use disorder and examining the VA opioid use disorder treatment landscape to understand where to prioritize future telemedicine implementation. This research will also increase understanding of barriers and facilitators to treatment access for Veterans with substance use disorders broadly, including Veterans in rural areas, and inform future interventions to improve treatment reach and access for the widespread population of Veterans with substance use disorders.
