Third Year Psychiatry Trainees

The third year of psychiatry training at NMCP focuses on the management of psychiatric patients in the outpatient setting. Residents will finely tune their knowledge of psychopharmacology, while gaining experience in a number of psychotherapeutic modalities including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy, and Psychodynamic Therapy. We have supervisors experienced in a wide range of other therapies available. Residents will have a 12-month longitudinal experience in our outpatient clinic, interspersed with periods of focus on child and adolescent patients, and a program for the treatment of individuals with severe and persistent psychiatric illness. Through a rotation at Eastern Virginia Medical School, residents will learn to administer electroconvulsive therapy.

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.
