Daniel Krashin

Personal Statement

Dr. Daniel Krashin is an Assistant Professor at the University of Washington working in Psychiatry and Pain Medicine. He works with both inpatient and outpatient pain patients, clinics and hospital staff to collaborate on treatment of patients, but also works on improving systems of care delivery to benefit patients and populations across the continuum of care.  Dr. Krashin has extensive experience working with underserved and vulnerable populations including the chronically mentally ill, recent immigrants, and HIV patients in the treatment of both psychiatric illness and chronic pain.  He has lectured extensively and authored a number of publications in the areas of pain management, comorbid pain and psychiatric disorders, substance abuse in the setting of pain treatment, and pharmacology of opioids and other pain relieving medications. He works closely with residents and pain fellows and participates in teaching the future generations of psychiatrists, anesthesiologists, and pain providers. He is board certified in both Psychiatry and Pain Medicine.​

Teaching Philosophy

The medical environment is changing faster and more dramatically now than ever before.  Instead of training a new generation who will go out and follow my instructions, I need to help them build a structure of knowledge that they can keep revising and adding to for the rest of their professional lives.
