The clinical curriculum in both Year 1 and Year 2 is organized in a monthly rotation of pre-selected clinical services (e.g., psychiatry, medicine, and neurology) at the Medical University Hospital, the Ralph H. Johnson Veterans Administration Medical Center (VA), and the Institute of Psychiatry (IOP). In all these settings, patients are seen along with the supervising attending who is involved in all significant decisions made.

The bulk of our psychotherapy training program occurs in Year 3, in which residents work with outpatients (adult and youth) in continuity clinics at the VA, IOP, student Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) and the Charleston Mental Health Center. Year 4 residents elect clinical, research, teaching and/or administrative experiences in individual areas of interest. The program provides the flexibility to tailor your training to meet your individual and research interests, and to develop teaching skills (e.g., by participating in medical student coursework, OSCE examinations, supervising clerkship experiences, etc.).
