R-3 Didactics
A horizontal line.

The PGY-3 didactics build on the material introduced in the first two years of residency. The didactic series supports the clinical rotations of the PGY-3 year, Child Psychiatry and Outpatient Psychotherapy. Child Psychiatry lectures feature information on normal and abnormal child development. Outpatient Psychotherapy didactics include "basics" on integrating psychotherapy and psychopharmacology, information about specific types of psychotherapy (group, couple/family), and the Therapeutic Interaction Seminar. The seminar format allows learning about transference, countertransference and other psychotherapy tools through case discussions.

Several modules covering advanced topics in psychiatry are included in the PGY-3 year: cross-cultural psychiatry; research critique; and ethics. A highlight of the PGY-3 didactics is a tour of Western State Hospital, the largest provider of inpatient psychiatric care to seriously and persistently mentally ill patients in Western Washington.

Instructors for the R-3 didactic series are specialists in the fields they teach. The program takes advantage of the full spectrum of expertise available within the full-time academic faculty in diverse psychiatric subspecialties and basic neuroscience, clinical faculty with full-time practices, and selected lecturers from other disciplines. Each year resident evaluations of our program are reviewed to assure a high quality of teaching throughout the year.
