About Regina Bussing

Dr. Bussing holds the position of Professor and Chair of the Department of Psychiatry at UF, and in 2016 was named the Donald Dizney Professor in recognition of her academic leadership role.

Dr. Bussing received her medical degree from the Justus Liebig University in Giessen, Germany. She subsequently completed her psychiatry residency and child and adolescent fellowship at the University of Florida in Gainesville, as well as a Master of Science degree in health services research from the UCLA School of Public Health.

Dr. Bussing’s research expertise spans mental health services, measure development, pharmaco-epidemiology, psychotherapy intervention, and clinical pharmacology trials research. As NIMH-funded investigator studying, she led studies assessing access and quality of care for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Dr. Bussing also conducted a double-blind randomized, controlled trial to assess antidepressant medication related activation phenomena in youth with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). She was the co-investigator of an NIH funded randomized clinical trial assessing preschoolers’ response to a non-medication intervention for ADHD, Parent Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT). Furthermore, she collaborated on several other pivotal NIH funded children’s mental health services studies and served as principal investigator on multiple pediatric clinical psychopharmacology trials for ADHD, depression, PTSD, panic disorder and Tourette syndrome. More recently, Dr. Bussing collaborated as clinical lead on measure development for the CMS inpatient psychiatric facilities (IPF) quality program, including an IPF-specific readmission measure.

Dr. Bussing has served as reviewer and chair for multiple NIH and CDC study sections and on advisory boards for several organizations, including Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (CHADD), PCIT International and the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI).
