Message from the Chief

Our department’s mission is to provide excellent clinical care in an academic environment. We use family systems and biopsychosocial models to understand patients and their families and use a full range of evidence based treatments. Training of students from medicine, psychology, occupational therapy, nursing, and social work is a high priority, and multi-disciplinary teamwork creates a respectful work setting.
