We invite you to consider the advantages of a program that allows you to:

  • Develop expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness in primary care populations
  • Improve management of medical problems in the chronically mentally ill living within the community
  • Gain skills as a psychiatric consultant to medical physicians
  • Participate in the integration of medicine and psychiatry in our future health care system
