Our Clinical Training Sites

Our residents rotate through the full breadth of the psychiatry ecosystem, including emergency psychiatry, consult liason, inpatient, forensic, PHP, outpatient (med management as well as psychotherapy), TMS, and ECT). Residents regularly teach and mentor medical students at most of these sites. The vast majority of our sites are within 3.5 miles of the LLU Medical Center. Our furthest site, Patton State Hospital, is an optional Forensic Psychiatry elective.
