Mark Oldham MD is an Associate Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC). He completed fellowship training in consultation-liaison (C-L) psychiatry at Yale School of Medicine, after which he served as medical director of the Behavioral Intervention Team at Yale-New Haven Hospital. In 2017, he transferred to URMC where he launched a proactive psychiatry C-L service called Proactive Integration of Mental Health Care in Medicine (PRIME Medicine).

Delirium is his scholarly focus. Dr. Oldham is President-Elect of the American Delirium Society and leads an interdisciplinary team at URMC focused on improving clinical care and outcomes of delirium. He is supported by a K23 award from the National Institute on Aging to investigate sleep in relation to delirium and dementia and conducts research in collaboration with the Division of Cardiac Surgery.

Dr. Oldham is a leader in proactive C-L psychiatry. As co-chair of the proactive C-L Special Interest Group at the Academy of Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry, he maintains a webpage with implementation resources and a bibliography on this care model.

He is also co-creator of online educational resources on the use of the Bush-Francis Catatonia Rating Scale (https://bfcrs.urmc.edu) and deputy editor of the Journal of the Academy of Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry.
