Phillip Coffin, MD, MIA, FACP, FIDSA



Phillip Coffin MD, MIA is a board-certified and practicing internist, infectious disease specialist, and addiction medicine specialist. He attended or trained at Brown University, Columbia University, the University of California San Francisco, and the University of Washington. He directs the Center on Substance Use and Health at the San Francisco Department of Public Health, including clinical trials assessing medications for multiple substance use disorders and interventions for opioid safety, overdose prevention, HIV prevention, and Hepatitis C treatment.

Dr. Phillip Coffin also conducts several studies into the impacts of changing opioid prescribing practices on vulnerable populations, substance use epidemiology, and initiatives addressing substance use and opioid safety in clinical care. To be perfectly candid though, he'd rather be kitesurfing.
