Residents have learning opportunities in community psychiatry, medical education, spirituality, neuroimaging, psychotherapy, health policy, global health, women’s health, and specialized work with minority communities such as LGBTQ and racial/ethnic minorities, just to name a few.
We are proud of our community rotations that provide us the opportunity to work with underserved populations, including:
- Boston Healthcare for the Homeless Program
- North Suffolk East Boston Counseling Center
- The Nashua Street Jail
- Revere Counseling
- Bridge Over Troubled Waters
Codman Square Health Center, Dimock Community Health Center, and Fenway Health.
Many of our trainees expand their expertise beyond the Boston area into the realm of global psychiatry in the 3rd and 4th years. Others use the practices and principles of global psychiatry to focus on global communities right here in our own backyard — for example, researching barriers to care through church outreach among African immigrants in the nearby town of Lowell, MA, or addressing disparities in mental health service utilization among immigrants in Boston’s Chinatown.
We appreciate being a part of an academic medical setting that shares these values and provides resources for inclusion across the spectrum of diversity interests.
