HMC Adult Medicine Clinic
The Adult Medicine Clinic provides primary care to over 10,000 patients age 18 and older per year. The clinic serves patients living with chronic medical illnesses, such as diabetes and coronary artery disease. Its mission is to provide the highest quality of care to patients with special needs. Attending and resident physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants see patients in this clinic. The clinic also has a team of professionals with expertise in mental illness, social work, nutrition, clinical pharmacy, women's health and patient education.
Psychiatry residents are in clinic for a 6 to 12 month rotations. If available, residents are invited to the Adult Medicine mental health team coordination meetings on Tuesday afternoons. These meetings include the clinic social worker, two clinic psychiatrists, as well as two mental health care managers. Residents see new patients for initial consultation and development of a biopsychosocial treatment plan, with follow-up as indicated for supportive psychotherapy and management of medications. Residents are encouraged to collaborate in the mental health management of patient with internal medicine colleagues. The rotation allows further opportunities to learn more about collaborative care practices and directly work with the clinic's multiple mental health care clinicians. The primary care provider room is an active area of case discussion, curbside consultation and teaching to medical students and internal medicine residents. Attending psychiatrists (either Kokil Chopra or Lydia Chywastiak, MD) are usually available for direct supervision of new clinical cases.
