Consultation for Community Systems of Care
In Year 2 of the program each resident will serve as a chief resident eight hours a week for four months (see following page). During this rotation they teach and consult to general psychiatry residents in Acute Psychiatry Service (APS) of the Emergency Department of MGH.
While rotating in the APS, the second-year residents will participate in a formal consultation service to the ARMS program and may elect to consult to the community mental health centers and agencies. The residents will review many of the cases seen in the APS and call one of the MGH-affiliated community health centers to follow up cases seen in the APS and treated in the Health Center. These centers include the Charlestown, Chelsea and Revere Health Centers.
Community consultation will be under the supervision of Dr. Laura Prager, Director of MGH Child Emergency Services and attending in the APS and byDr. Marti Kane, Director of the ARMS program.
