Second Year Psychiatry Trainees

The second year of psychiatry training at NMCP focuses on the management of psychiatric patients in the emergent and inpatient settings. The inpatient unit at NMCP is composed of three teams, each lead by a different psychiatry attending. The team typically includes a varying mixture of the following: a nurse, psychiatric technician, medical student, psychology intern, and psychiatry intern. Residents become proficient in psychiatric assessment, and become experienced with a wide range of psychopharmacology as well as group and brief individual psychotherapies.

The Psychiatric Consult Service evaluates patients in the Emergency Medicine Department and those admitted to the medical and surgical services at NMCP. The service is led by a psychiatrist who is board-certified in consultation/liaison psychiatry. Residents become experienced with intensive but efficient psychiatric evaluation, and become proficient in evaluating the work of psychiatric interns and medical students.

In both settings, the resident’s role as an educator and role model for psychiatric interns and medical students is heavily emphasized.

All psychiatry residents years 2 through 4 take 24-hour call to cover the inpatient services on the weekdays and weekends.

Didactics are protected time (daily from 1200-1300) with a range of classes taught by psychiatry and psychology faculty.
