Program Description

The comprehensive psychiatry services and large faculty at each site bring a wide range of specialized training and theoretical orientations to the training program. The programs at each site are essentially same, with shared philosophy of training and similar training experiences, serving a culturally diverse, urban population. Interns are interviewed and selected for a specific site which serves as their home base throughout the training year. There are cross-site seminars and interns may elect specific cross-site rotations and training activities. While there are some differences in certain electives, a core emphasis at both sites is the inpatient psychiatry experience where interns provide individual, group and family therapy for inpatients on their unit and participate as full members of the multidisciplinary team. Each site has PER, consultation liaison and adult outpatient training opportunities as well as unique specialty areas: a bilingual/bicultural inpatient unit, pediatric neurodevelopmental assessment services, pediatric mental health services, Family Advocacy Program for newly identified abused children, adult and pediatric HIV services, medical rehabilitation services and comprehensive substance abuse services including inpatient detox and outpatient day program(JMC); and a partial hospital program and a geriatric inpatient unit (NCB). Interns are required to complete two 4 month inpatient rotations and one 3-4 month elective rotation. At JMC, the second inpatient rotation may be exchanged for rehab medicine, PER, bariatric surgery, consultation liaison or substance abuse. At NCB, interns do 1 month in the PER. All interns are placed on a year-long outpatient site. Testing is a component of the training so experience with Rorschach/Exner scoring is required. Weekly, interns receive at least 4-5 hours of group and individual supervision.
