Edouard Coupet, MD, MSHP is an Assistant Professor in Emergency Medicine at the Yale School of Medicine. Dr. Coupet completed his residency training at the Jacobi/Montefiore Emergency Medicine program and completed a Center for Emergency Care Policy & Research fellowship at the University of Pennsylvania. His fellowship research focused on the implications of the Affordable Care Act on acute care of violent injury, the effects of the young adult private insurance expansion on unintentional opioid overdoses in the emergency department (ED), and firearm injury prevention.
Trained to work with large datasets and qualitative data and healthcare disparities, Dr. Coupet has rapidly established himself as a promising health services researcher. His primary research interests are in the intersection between substance use & community violence and racial and socio-economic disparities in access to addiction treatment. As a DAHRS scholar, Dr. Coupet’s research plan is focused on conducting projects that will guide our understanding of violently injured individuals with co-occurring substance use disorders. Most specifically he will be working on a study aimed at developing a behavioral mobile health intervention to reduce substance use among young, violently injured patients ages 18-30, who are treated in the ED. His goal is to develop a smartphone-based, ecological momentary assessment (EMA) tool to gather real-time data by tracking substance use in violently injured young adults, will lead to the development of an intervention with this particular population and provide preliminary data for future R01 studies.
