The Residency Education & Training Committee includes: chief residents, faculty members, directors of each clinical training site, director of residency education, and representatives of the Divisions of Clinical Psychology and Social Work.
Our clinical education is structured to allow the resident sufficient flexibility to meet graduation requirements as well as to pursue individual needs and interests. Because the residentís education is paramount, individual interests are actively encouraged and supported. Constant monitoring ensures that educational needs are not usurped by service needs. Didactics and supervision time are protected.
In addition to intensive clinical supervision, a PGY faculty coordinator is responsible for working with residents during each of the training program's four years. The coordinator is familiar with all aspects of the curriculum and rotations in that year and attempts to maximize each resident's learning experiences.
To obtain feedback on education and to prepare residents for boards, the program administers a written PRITE examination annually. Also, on each rotation, residents receive formal clinical interview observation & critique. These are all treated as learning opportunities and have contributed to a high success rate on subsequent specialty examinations.
