Benjamin Silverman, MD Co-Founder and Senior Medical Consultant

As a physician, my clinical interests include implementing innovative, evidence-based techniques to help people make behavioral changes, especially in the area of co-occurring psychiatric and addictive disorders. It has always been clear to me that technology, when used wisely, could help people achieve behavioral change. At the same time, technology could permit me to share my expertise and help many more people than I would be able to see face-to-face in my office. Working at iRewardHealth allows me to accomplish both of these goals: to apply technology in evidence-based ways to help people achieve behavioral change and to share this benefit with as many people as we can.

By way of background, my professional and academic training is in psychiatry, addiction psychiatry, and medical ethics. I graduated from college and medical school at the Johns Hopkins University and completed residency and fellowship training at McLean Hospital, Massachusetts General Hospital, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and Harvard Medical School. As another passion, I continue to teach medical ethics and am on the faculty at Harvard Medical School.
