Lectures to be given by the Fellow
Fellows are expected to devise and deliver at least 3 lectures to junior psychiatry residents on topics of psychosomatic medicine.
In addition to rotation-specific (bedside) supervision, Fellows will receive two 1-hour supervision sessions per week with the Program Director. The supervision will focus on rotation-specific topics and pertinent literature, collaboration and supervision skills, practice improvement, development of professional identity, and work-life balance.
This monthly meeting will cover readings pertinent to psychosomatic medicine. Articles will be assigned for review and then discussion. These meetings will often occur off-site, and can include various faculty members.
Psychiatry Grand Rounds
These weekly presentations occur from September through May.
