The Department of Psychiatry, Carilion Clinic - Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine, continues to advance itself in its academic pursuits under the auspices of its psychiatry residency program led by our Chair, Dr. Robert Trestman, and our Program Director, Dr. Michael P. Greenage. In October, we were delighted to have reaped the fruits of our efforts in various academic venues.
At this year’s Annual Fall Meeting of the Psychiatric Society of Virginia held in Virginia Beach in October 2019, Carilion Clinic - Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine had considerable representation at presenting posters at the meeting. We had a total of 11 posters presented by residents and medical students. Dr. Ilan Kerman, PGY-4 Resident, won first prize for his poster, “Development of an Undergraduate Course in Clinical Neuroscience in Psychiatry,” and I, Dr. Badr Ratnakaran, PGY-3 Resident, won the third prize for the poster, “A Case Series on the Use of Clevidipine for Intraprocedural Hypertension During Electroconvulsive Therapy.”
