Our residents are scoped to prescribe for a longitudinal resident clinic throughout their residency year, which is rare to programs and provides the experience of being a provider. Our program additionally focuses on a holistic approach to the management of psychiatric conditions beyond typical medication management by utilizing Cranial Electrical Stimulation (CES) and auricular acupuncture (of which the resident will be trained in use).
