The concept of combined Internal Medicine and Psychiatry postgraduate training for physicians began in West Virginia. The Charleston Division of West Virginia University School of Medicine was the second such residency program in the United States. For over 20 years, our Institution has maintained a strong commitment to the concept of combined Internal Medicine/Psychiatry training. Graduates of our program are now active in many areas of medical practice, ranging from academia to private practice.
This particular program is designed to provide a comprehensive, well-rounded and balanced training to residents in the fields of Medicine/Psychiatry and in the areas of overlap which occur in these fields. The training is designed to prepare graduates for diverse opportunities in medical practice, including primary care, fellowship,academia and public health positions.
Strengths of our program include faculty level director appointments in both Medicine and Psychiatry to oversee the program and coordinate the training between the two departments. The Chief Medicine/Psychiatry resident position provides visibility and leadership among housestaff officers. The longevity of the program provides a mature and stable training environment. The program includes a combined Med/Psych Clinic under the direction of the Program Coordinator to enhance integrated clinical experiences.
The large Charleston Area Medical Center facility, long standing cooperative relationships between the Internal Medicine and Psychiatry departments, program leadership and stability, and a collegial academic atmosphere contribute to making the combined Med/Psych residency at CAMC a unique and rewarding experience.
