In the Division of Adult Ambulatory Psychiatry, we provide a broad range of outpatient care to patients with psychiatric health needs. In addition to general psychiatric clinics run by our attendings and residents, we also treat patients in the following specialty clinics:
- Women's health
- Metabolic health and wellness
- Substance abuse and mental illness
As outpatient psychiatrists, we have the unique and humbling opportunity to develop lasting, meaningful relationships with our patients. We provide personalized care based on each patient’s individual needs, using treatment methods such as cognitive behavioral therapy, supportive psychotherapy, psychodynamic psychotherapy, family therapy, psychopharmacology and combined medication management with various psychotherapies.
Located at the Jackson Center, in the heart of Richmond’s Jackson Ward neighborhood, our unit provides a supportive and collaborative learning environment for trainees.
Psychiatry residents rotate through our division during their second, third and fourth years of training. All senior residents spend their final year in the program running their own longitudinal, semi-autonomous psychopharmacology clinic, with the supervision and support of physician faculty mentors. These fourth-year residents prepare for outpatient practice by treating patients over the course of the year and building connections as they would in an independent outpatient practice.Learn more about the psychiatry residency
