Academic Interests

Dr. Levine’s academic interests focus on education and program development to improve care for vulnerable older adults and other patients with complex comorbid illnesses. She is an experienced mentor of physicians and allied health professionals and a national leader in geriatrics and palliative medicine with extensive experience in creation and dissemination of competency-based educational programs. Addressing gaps in the workforce has been an important motivator in her regional and national work. She is co-PI of a large-scale, multi-centered project in palliative care education that involves longitudinal training in clinical and teaching skills, program development, leadership engagement, and patient advocacy for physicians, advance practice practitioners, social workers, and chaplains from over 20 health institutions in the greater Chicago region. Dr. Levine serves as a senior mentor for the Health Services Research Administration Geriatrics Workforce Enhancement Program grant, “Supporting Healthy Aging Resources and Education (SHARE)”, which aims to develop community-based primary care clinicians in geriatric medicine and create a supportive collaborative network of older adults in the community.
