Dr. Beidas is an associate professor of Psychiatry and Medical Ethics and Health Policy at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania and Director of Implementation Research.

Dr. Rinad Beidas is an Associate Professor of Psychiatry; Medical Ethics and Health Policy; and Medicine at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. She is the Founder and Director of the Penn Implementation Science Center at the Leonard Davis Institute (PISCE@LDI). 

Additionally, Dr. Beidas is the director of  the ARCH (Accelerating Research-to-Practice in Community Health) Lab, which has two primary foci: (1) improving behavioral health and the quality of behavioral health services for traditionally underserved patients; and (2) advancing the study of methods to promote the systematic uptake of research findings and other evidence-based practices into routine practice to improve the quality and effectiveness of health services (i.e., implementation science).

Her research program is designed to improve the quality of health and mental health services through implementation science. To conduct this work, Beidas collaborates closely with key stakeholders, including patients, clinicians, health system leaders, payers, and policymakers, to develop natural laboratories in which to answer questions of interest.

A recent social network analysis conducted by Norton and colleagues identified Dr. Beidas as among the top 10 implementation science experts nationally. Dr. Beidas has published approximately 100 articles and is the co-editor of the only book published on EBPs in youth, Dissemination and implementation of evidence-based practices in child and adolescent mental health.
