About me

Dr. Kusin joined the Department of Emergency Medicine as a full-time faculty in July 2013 after completing fellowship training at OHSU. Her academic interests include medical toxicology (in particular, drugs of abuse and plant and animal- based toxins) and optimization of the electronic health record to enhance community-wide health care through information sharing and clinical decision support. Dr. Kusin is a huge enthusiast of creative writing; she teaches an elective to medical students about the value of creative writing in medical training and is close to completing her first novel. She also enjoys strength training, kickboxing, and dance.

Before scheduling your appointment, we recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the OHSU Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any copayments, co–insurance, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with OHSU providers, your out of pocket liability may be higher. Visit the billing and insurance section of our site for more information.
