Behavioral Medicine

This is one of our more unique PGY-1 rotations as every day is different. We work primarily with our faculty Behaviorist at Turley. We see patients together, and in the process become comfortable with the psychiatric office visit and the documentation of the psychiatric evaluation. We are also exposed to the many community resources available to our patients in terms of counseling, rehab programs, and classes. We also spend time with a Hospice Physician making house calls on terminally ill patients. We have several excellent lectures on common psychiatric problems and the medications used to treat them done jointly by our pharmacist and our Behaviorist. The rotation is concluded with a Resident presentation on a Behavioral Medicine topic of their choice.  The presentation then becomes a part of the Turley library.
