Ian Bennett, MD, PhD

My academic and clinical work has focused on delivering primary health services to vulnerable populations in the U.S. and developing countries around the world. I am currently the principal investigator of an NIH-funded trial of the implementation of collaborative care for perinatal depression in health centers, and I have been funded by Grand Challenges Canada to study health strategies to reach of pregnant women in the U.S., Nigeria, and Peru. 

A significant amount of my work has explored how technology can be used to support evidence-based care models in primary care settings. As a family physician, I provide a full spectrum primary care that includes obstetric, family planning, pediatrics, and general adult health. I also have expertise in mental health, implementation science, strategies to support implementation and dissemination of evidence-based practices for behavioral health integration, and ways to enhance mental health services in primary care settings.
