Mark Duncan, MD, Assistant Professor, UW Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences; Co-Medical Director UW PACC, Telepsychiatry Rotation, and Advanced Collaborative Care - Addictions Medical Education. Dr. Duncan currently works in an outpatient psychiatry clinic with general psychiatry patients, consults in addiction psychiatry, is a consultant for both the Behavioral Health Integration Program (BHIP) and Mental Health Integration Program (MHIP), works on the Harm Reduction with Pharmacotherapy (HARP) study in alcohol abuse and homelessness, and works with family medicine residents to improve their training in mental health work. He loves his work because it is interesting, there is opportunity to help people and improve lives, and there are opportunities for innovation and creativity. Five years from now, he hopes that collaborative care has stretched to better treat addictions and opiate use to fill the need and potential within that field.
