Residents will spend most of their outpatient training in the MGH Outpatient Clinic under the direction of Dr. Bruce Masek, clinical director, and Dr. Eugene Beresin, medical director. Elective time may be devoted to working in the McLean Hospital Outpatient Clinic, under the direction of Dr. Karen Monroe.
