the value of BIDMC training

Jason P. Caplan, MD, FAPA, FAPM<

"I can think of no better venue for training in psychiatry than Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. As I look back on my time as a resident there, it is genuinely astonishing to consider the rich tapestry of therapeutic approaches, venues of care, and (most importantly) patients that I was able to encounter. Trainees at BIDMC have the opportunity to work in the entire range of adult psychiatric practice including a busy Emergency Department , a respected inpatient unit, a diverse consultation service, and a vibrant psychotherapy clinic – all integrated into a world-renowned tertiary-care medical center. Skills I learned in my time at BIDMC continue to inform my career and my day-to-day interactions with my patients. I feel proud and lucky to have trained there."

"My residency experiences at BIDMC were essential in helping me to grow into the psychiatrist I am. The teaching, clinical experience, and research electives opened doors and piqued interests I never knew were there. The residency helped to nurture my interest in the subspecialized field of neuromodulation, an area of academic and clinical psychiatry that BIDMC truly shines. As an institution with as many strengths in the clinical neurosciences as psychotherapies, I always felt confident that my training at BIDMC would prepare me to become a leader in psychiatry, regardless of where my individual path would lead."

"My Beth Israel training was integral in making me the psychiatrist I am today. I come away with great pride and joy from the training experience. From the early experiences on the inpatient and partial hospital, learning how to provide individualized, evidence based care for the severely mentally ill to more advanced training in psychodynamic and behavioral therapy with a diverse therapy population. Supervisors and work colleagues encouraged and challenged me to excel in clinical knowledge, patient care and leadership. I feel grateful to have trained in an environment that balanced rigor and support so effortlessly."
