After training, he joined the faculty of Yale-New Haven Hospital and served as an attending psychiatrist and, later, as medical director of the Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT)--a proactive, integrated psychiatric consult service that screens hospital medicine patients for active mental health concerns and collaborates closely with medicine and nursing staff to deliver integrated mental health care in the hospital (

In late 2017, Dr. Oldham transferred to URMC where he launched a proactive psychiatry consult service at Strong Memorial Hospital called Proactive Integration of Mental Health Care in Medicine (PRIME Medicine), for which he continues to serve as medical director.

At URMC, he has collaborated with Drs. Wortzel and Francis to develop a comprehensive set of resources on catatonia assessment ( and leads an interdisciplinary team that aims to improve the care of patients with and at risk for delirium.

He currently serves as treasurer of the American Delirium Society and deputy editor of the Journal of the Academy of Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry.
