Psychiatry Residency Rotations
The four-year residency program in general psychiatry emphasizes in-depth understanding of the individual patient. Residents are well prepared for a wide range of psychiatric careers such as research, teaching and hospital-based or private practice. There are nine positions available in each class, including an R25-sponsored research track.
At the Asher Center, senior residents have the opportunity to learn about the special behavioral health needs of women’s during their reproductive years. Residents will advance their clinical skills in the management of patients with general anxiety, major depression and bipolar disorders during the perinatal period and in preconception planning. They will gain experience the treatment of co-presenting mood and anxiety disorders in women with epilepsy, cancer and inflammatory disorders. Residents will see new intakes, provide follow up care in a 6 month Women’s Mental Health clinic and receive individual supervision with Asher faculty Dorothy K. Sit, MD, who is Director, Perinatal Mental Health Fellowship, Medical Director, Obstetrics and Psychiatry Compass Collaborative Care, Grand Rounds Program Committee Chair, Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and based at the Asher Center for the Study and Treatment of Depressive Disorders. Residents also have the opportunity to request elective time AND complete a scholarly project related to perinatal mental health.
