Chief Medical Officer at NOCD

Dr. Jamie Feusner is Chief Medical Officer at NOCD, where he designs, manages, and advances treatment protocols and oversees clinical outcomes. He is also the Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Toronto, Clinician Scientist at the Centre for Addiction & Mental Health, and Adjunct Professor at the Karolinska Institute. Dr. Feusner has 18 years clinical & research experience with OCD & body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) and has published over 130 peer-reviewed papers and book chapters, and lectures nationally & internationally on the topics of OCD, BDD, and eating disorders.


My role as Chief Medical Officer involves general oversight of the treatment being delivered by OCD and how providers are trained; clinical leadership and management; measuring, monitoring, and reporting clinical outcomes; and clinical innovation research

To restore hope for people with OCD through better awareness and treatment. This mission is why I joined NOCD in 2018. OCD is treatable, yet many people with OCD do not get better because they may not know that what they experience is OCD, what treatments are effective, or how to get treatment. NOCD has addressed these barriers by providing evidence-based exposure and response prevention, covered by most private insurance plans, delivered virtually by therapists who receive extensive training in OCD and OCD-related disorders, and supplemented by messaging between sessions and peer and community support.“

Previously, Dr. Feusner was the Director of UCLA’s OCD Intensive Treatment Program for 15 years, where he conducted neuroimaging research in OCD and investigated acute & long-term treatment response in OCD. He currently resides on the Board of Directors of the International College of Obsessive Compulsive Spectrum Disorders and the IOCDF Clinical & Scientific Advisory Board.
