January, 2020 PROGRAM UPDATES! We are delighted to announce several program updates:
Three of our residents matched into Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Fellowship for the 2020-2021 academic year. Arielle Lasky (PGY3) matched as a fast-track applicant to the UCSF Child and Adolescent Fellowship, Juan Lopez (PGY3) matched as a fast-track applicant to the Stanford Child and Adolescent Fellowship (Community Track position), and Tram Nguyen (PGY4) matched to the Stanford Child and Adolescent Fellowship (Categorical position).
Construction of our new office building has begun! The Psychiatry Residency Program will have space in a brand new building on the third floor, co-located with Public Health. We look forward to a sunlight-filled space that will double as a resident lounge and learning center. Construction began in early January and is expected to be complete in 12-18 months.
Renovations will begin at one of our training sites, San Mateo Medical Center, in May, 2020, and will update our inpatient psychiatric unit as well as our psychiatry emergency services. Clinical care and residency training will continue at this site during this time.
We are a comprehensive psychiatry residency program with an emphasis on community psychiatry at the San Mateo County Behavioral Health and Recovery Services in the San Francisco Bay Area. Our program offers a personalized and progressive approach to psychiatry residency training that guides and nurtures each resident to his or her full professional potential. We aim to graduate psychiatrists who excel in psychiatric knowledge and clinical skills while also making a deep impact on the lives of our patients, our system of care, and the field of community psychiatry.
