Our psychiatric services are well integrated, and our training program
includes instruction by faculty with extensive expertise in all fields. Our
residents are challenged in many subspecialties of Psychiatry, and gain
experience in many treatment modalities. Our faculty has trained in many
diverse fields, such as DDMI (Developmental Disabled - Mental Illness),
where residents get the opportunity to train with a Board Certified
specialist, who operates the only inpatient facility of this kind in New
Jersey. In addition, residents will get the chance to treat their own
patients, in both inpatient and outpatient settings, and be supervised by
experts in Geriatric Psychiatry, Forensic Psychiatry, Substance Abuse,
Partial Hospital, Child, Consultation and Emergency Psychiatry. We also
feature training in psychodynamic psychotherapy, cognitive behavioral
therapy, family and group therapy, neuropsychological testing, and
interviewing techniques. Trainees will gain experience as a team leader, by
working with allied health professions through interdisciplinary rounds.
These may include trainees from other teaching programs at Trinitas, such as
social work and psychology programs.
One of the greatest strengths of our program is that all of the clinical
experiences are available on site at Trinitas. Residents only need to travel
outside our hospital for two months of Neurology training.
