Jessica JB Wyse, PhD, is a Core Investigator with the Center to Improve Veteran Involvement in Care (CIVIC) at the VA Portland Health Care System and Assistant Professor in the Oregon Health & Science University-Portland State University School of Public Health. Dr. Wyse received a doctorate in Sociology and Public Policy from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, where she also completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the Institute for Social Research. She began at CIVIC as an HSR&D postdoctoral fellow in 2016. Dr. Wyse's research seeks to understand how to enhance access to, and delivery of, medications for opioid use disorder (MOUD) and other evidence-based treatments for substance use disorders. Her research has documented VA's efforts to increase patient access to MOUD, as well as persistent disparities in access and retention in MOUD treatment. She often uses qualitative research methods to draw out patient and provider experiences and perspectives with the goal of informing and improving upon programs, policies, and care delivery. Her VA Career Development Award focuses on expanding access to opioid use disorder treatment for Veterans in rural, primary care settings.
