    • Family Medicine
    • Core Faculty Member - Tufts Family Medicine Program at Cambridge Health Alliance

    Randi Sokol, MD, MPH, MMedEd is a core faculty member at the Tufts Family Medicine program, where she is involved in clinical work, teaching, research, and advocacy, specifically around vulnerable populations that struggle with substance abuse and mental health issues. She helped start group visits for substance abuse at the Malden Family Medicine site, which have now been running for over 4 years, and now runs the Pain and Addiction Curriculum and the Group Visit curriculum for the residents.  She has recently become very involved in research related to Group Based Opioid Treatment (“GBOT”), a term she coined in the medical literature and has presented at several national conferences and provides individual consultation to clinics and residency program looking to treat addiction through a group-based model. Randi also serves on several CHA- wide committees related to pain and addiction and helped create PASS, an interdisciplinary consultation service to support primary care providers with complex pain/addiction-related cases.  Randi has subsequently become Board certified in Addictions Medicine and PSCC-certified to train providers to become Buprenorphine waivered. She is currently working on an interdisciplinary project through the CHA Gold Fellowship to link the prescribing of Buprenorphine in the ED and Inpatient setting to outpatient treatment programs to help end the “revolving door” of admissions related to opioid use disorder and help link patients to long-term primary care.

    In addition to her passions for pain/addiction and group visits, Randi also helped bring the treatment of Hepatitis C into the primary care setting across CHA through partnership with an Infectious Disease doctor and several primary care colleagues. She also continues to be involved in graduate medical education: she serves on the Society of Teachers in Family Medicine (STFM) Graduate Medical Education committee at the national level and is the Director of Faculty Development for Malden Family Medicine physician faculty.  She is also heavily involved in research related to her thesis around transformational learning and information mastery. Randi is also active in legislative advocacy, serving on the Executive Board and Legislative Affairs Committee to the Massachusetts Academy of Family Physicians. She also teaches at both the graduate and undergraduate medical levels around diverse topics with a particular passion for motivational interviewing and chronic disease management. 

    In her free time, Randi serves as Big Sister in the Big Sister/ Little Sister Program, loves spending time with her geriatric rescue-lab, and is an avid exerciser.
