Research and Interests

Dr. Nerenberg’s main interests focus on Medical Education in Addiction Psychiatry. As faculty at University of Michigan since 1994, she was one of the coordinators of the Addiction Psychiatry Fellowship at that site, training medical students, residents and fellows. At UBC, she teaches Addiction Psychiatry to medical students and residents at their Victoria site, through the Island Medical Program. She has also been involved in new electives in Addiction Psychiatry and curriculum development.

Dr. Nerenberg is also committed to cultural competency and outreach to underserved communities. In 2000, she won a Humanism in Medicine award at University of Michigan for spearheading interdisciplinary outreach clinical teams to undocumented Migrant Farm worker communities, in the fields of Michigan.

New offerings include an Addiction Psychiatry rotation for the Aboriginal Family Practice program at UBC, at the Victoria Native Friendship Centre, starting in 2015.
