Zoe M. Weinstein, MD, MS, is a graduate of Boston University’s Addiction Medicine Fellowship and board certified in Internal Medicine and Addiction Medicine. She has been the Director of Boston Medical Center’s interdisciplinary addiction consult service since July 2016. She has been NIDA grant funded as a co-investigator on multiple studies to deliver training and technical assistance to interdisciplinary provider teams (physicians, nurse practitioners, social workers, addiction counselors and recovery coaches) to expand treatment for opioid use disorder among hospitalized patients in New York City public hospitals as well as hospitals in Massachusetts as part of the HEALing Communities Study. She is currently site-PI of two NIDA Clinical Trial Network studies focused on inpatient addiction care. Her clinical and research work are also focused on long-term Office-Based Addiction Treatment (OBAT) with buprenorphine. She currently serves as Associate Director of Boston University’s Addiction Medicine Fellowship Program, a board member of AMERSA and is a site medical director of a local methadone clinic.
Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility
As a graduate of BU's Women's Leadership program, I am dedicated to serving as a career mentor and peer mentor to trainees and faculty who identify as women. As the director of the Addiction Consult Service, I am dedicated to equity and diversity in the hiring process as well as retaining and promoting staff from diverse backgrounds, especially staff who identify as BIPOC, LGBTQIA+,and those with lived experience with substance use. As one of the Associate Program Directors for the Addiction Medicine Fellowship, I have collaborated with the rest of the fellowship leadership on completely revising the interview process to a structured interview to increase diversity, equity and accessibility of the fellowship program and increase the diversity of the addiction workforce. This has been done in partnership with the Inclusion Diversity & Equity In Addiction medicine, Addiction health professions, and Addiction research (IDEAAA) Program and the Recognizing and Eliminating Disparities in Addiction through Culturally-informed Healthcare (REACH Program).
I am personally committed to continuing to explore and address my own biases, including participating in Boston University's Bias Reduction in Internal Medicine training, the Conversations on Race/Equity discussion series, and the DOM Reads book club.
