Dr. Chen has extensive experience in intimate partner violence (IPV) training and research in health care settings. She has received funding from the National Institute of Health and foundations for studies on aspects of intimate partner violence, including screening, long-term effects, and interventions.

In a recent update, the United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommends that clinicians screen women of childbearing age (14-46 years) for IPV and provide or refer women who screen positive for intervention. As the lead author, Dr. Chen and her colleagues wrote a four-part monograph on IPV for American Academy of Family Physicians FP Essentials, one of the largest educational activities of the American Academy of Family Physicians, to provide updated knowledge on IPV to family physicians nationally.
Dr. Chen developed a new IPV clerkship curriculum for 4th year medical students in 2012.

In collaboration with leading community domestic violence programs, she has trained future physicians in domestic violence screening and intervention in various health care settings. Through this clerkship, health care education was provided to residents of a domestic violence shelter, including victims with disabilities.
