This rotation is housed in the Johnson Depression Center (JDC), a specialty center for mood and anxiety disorders located within the Department of Psychiatry. Many JDC clients are experiencing symptoms of depression, Bipolar Disorder, trauma and/or anxiety disorders. Other presenting issues may include eating disorder symptoms, grief and adjustment difficulties.
The JDC includes an active telehealth program and many client visits are conducted via secure video conferencing. In addition, the JDC staff includes Psychiatrists and Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners. Thus, Interns have the opportunity to observe and consult regarding psychiatric medication evaluations and management, if interested.
