Theresa W. Kim, MD is Clinical Associate Professor at Chobanian and Avedisian School of Medicine and clinician-investigator in the Section of General Internal Medicine at Boston Medical Center. After completing research training in a NIH-funded fellowship, she joined the faculty of the Clinical Addiction Research Education (CARE) program at Boston Medical Center. In addition to board-certification in Addiction Medicine and Internal Medicine, she is accredited as a HIV Specialist by the American Academy of HIV Medicine. She has extensive experience providing HIV and shelter-based primary care as a staff member of the Boston HealthCare for the Homeless Program for over 20 years. She has published and received NIH-funding for her research on improving access to addiction care in medical settings for disadvantaged populations. This has included examining 1) the impact of housing instability, depression, and substance use on access to care for people with HIV infection; 2) defining and measuring the quality of medical care on addiction outcomes; and 3) screening and brief intervention for unhealthy alcohol and drug use in general medical settings. In addition to a health services focus, she has published in the area of medical comorbidities including falls and poor bone health (osteoporosis and vitamin D deficiency).
