Psychiatrists are uniquely positioned to improve access to effective mental health care in the context of rapidly evolving health care reform. Integrated care programs, in which mental health care is delivered in primary care settings, exist as a promising solution to common, disabling and costly behavioral health problems.
Psychiatry residents must demonstrate competence in managing and treating patients using psychotherapy and have significant experience in the initial evaluation and treatment of ongoing individual psychotherapy patients. The following courses highlight.
Psychiatry residents must demonstrate competence in managing and treating patients through pharmacological regimens and managing and treating chronically-mentally ill patients with appropriate psychopharmacologic interventions.
In addition to developing competency as clinicians, graduating residents must also be prepared for the business side of a complex, constantly evolving healthcare system. From risk management to negotiating your first contract, there are a wide range of topics to become comfortable with to ensure a smooth transition to practice.
