Andrew M. Busch Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and Human Behavior (Research)

Dr. Busch holds a doctorate in clinical psychology from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. He completed his clinical internship and post-doctoral fellowship at The Alpert Medical School of Brown University. Dr. Busch's early research focused on treating depression in psychiatric populations using Behavioral Activation, an empirically supported counseling treatment. More recently, he has focused on using Behavioral Activation to target both mood and smoking cessation in chronically ill populations (i.e., physically disabled, cardiac patients). Dr. Busch recently received a K23 career development award from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (K23HL107391). During this award he will develop and test a Behavioral Activation based treatment for smoking cessation and mood management following hospitalization for a cardiac event. Dr. Busch also researches interventions to increase physical activity in cardiac patients and exercise interventions as treatments for depression.
