We hope the resident gains an understanding of the importance of developing and maintaining positive and healthy interpersonal relationships in the workplace.

Site Special Features

The residency program, in affiliation with the University of Missouri Psychiatric Center and Harry S. Truman VA hospital, provides experiences in forensic psychiatry, pediatric and adolescent psychiatry, long-term and acute inpatient psychiatry, outpatient, geriatrics, developmental disabilities, pain management, substance use disorder, administration, and research.
The resident will serve on committees such as the Trauma-Informed Care Consultation Committee and Psychopharmacology Committee which act as a consultation service for difficult and complex patient care decisions. The hospital also has a Research Committee that the resident will attend on a weekly basis to discuss their residency project and other related activities.
Additionally, there is an opportunity for the resident to have a longitudinal learning experience that provides the necessary skills to implement a clozapine clinic and pharmacy managed laboratory that performs hematology monitoring for clozapine treated patients. This experience focuses on the clinical and operational aspects of managing a clozapine laboratory and clinic. Upon completion of this experience, the resident will meet the CLIA qualifications to serve as a director or technical consultant of a moderate complexity laboratory.
