Bradley Stein is a senior physician policy researcher at the RAND Corporation and an adjunct associate professor of psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh. A health services and policy researcher with clinical experience working with children and adults with mental health and substance use disorders, Stein's research focuses on understanding and improving care for individuals with mental health and substance use disorders. Stein has worked extensively in the area of school mental health, developing, evaluating, implementing, and disseminating a school-based intervention for students exposed to trauma and violence, as well as implementing a school-based suicide intervention program. He has examined the mental health and substance abuse care of a broad range of Medicaid enrollees, including children and adults with depression, children with ADHD, children with autism, and children receiving psychotropic medications. In recent years a substantial amount of his work has focused on how state and federal policies influence the availability and quality of medication assisted treatment for opioid use disorders, and factors influencing the potentially inappropriate prescribing of opioid analgesics. Stein's recent work also involves using technology to support the dissemination and implementation of effective interventions for traumatized children. Stein received his Ph.D. in health policy and administration from the Pardee RAND Graduate School, and his M.D. and M.P.H. in health services administration from the University of Pittsburgh.
