Rotations: PGY1

Rochele Brown, Marc Hem Lee, and Kelila Kahane on their Internal Medicine Rotation.

The PGYI program is designed to provide residents with the medical experiences and skills that are most relevant to psychiatric practice.

Residents spend three months rotating on Internal Medicine services, which includes time on general medicine wards and on an internal medicine consult service. Each resident also spends one month in Emergency Medicine.

PGY1 residents also rotate for one month on the Neurology Consultation Service at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. Residents spend one month on a rotation in Addictions Psychiatry, with experiences on the Addictions Psychiatry service at BIDMC and at Lahey Hospital, providing individual and group treatments for patients with substance use disorder in a variety of settings.

Residents spend three months rotating at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center where they learn about the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of acutely ill psychiatric patients. One-and-a-half months are spent alternating between the Emergency Psychiatric Service and Night Float call on the Deaconess 4 Inpatient Psychiatry Service.
