Research at NCIRE

NCIRE-The Veterans Health Research Institute is the leading private nonprofit institute devoted to Veterans health research in the United States. Our mission is to advance Veterans health through research.

We support the work of some of the nation's foremost physicians and scientists at the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center, the premier biomedical research facility in the VA system. All have faculty appointments at the University of California, San Francisco, which has its own proud traditions of research and patient care. We also partner with the U.S. Department of Defense to support health research on behalf of our men and women in the Armed Forces.

Those who have served in uniform have given their best for their country. In return, we believe that they deserve nothing less than the best health care research we can provide.

Integrated Care, Psychiatry Consultation, and Medical Education

Dr. Lee’s research interests include outcomes in integrated and consultative care; the concept of such programs is to promote interaction between mental health and other specialty providers, with the goal of providing quality care for patients seen outside of the traditional mental health setting.  Examples include co-located or collaborative mental health care in the outpatient primary care setting, and psychiatry consultation on inpatient medical or surgical wards.  As Director of the UCSF Psychosomatic Medicine Fellowship Program and Site Director for Psychiatry Medical Student Education at the SFVAMC, he is also interested in better understanding the educational experiences of medical trainees, particularly in the integrated or consultative care setting.
