Welcome to the Griffin Memorial Hospital Psychiatry Residency Training Program. Our residency is structured to train psychiatrists to be excellent clinicians. We are highly community based, and have the largest inpatient facility in the state. Established in the 1890’s and named after David Griffin, Griffin Memorial Hospital is now a 120 bed facility that forms the backbone of our early clinical experience. Hidden Oklahoma: Norman hospital once a ‘mythical city'.
At Griffin, psychiatry residents will learn to treat both common and rare forms of mental illness. Many patients with difficult illnesses are referred to us for care, and we are one of few facilities that can treat people for an extended time if needed.
We provide an early child/adolescent experience at both outpatient and inpatient child rotations in the second year of residency. Our outpatient child rotation is with Child and Family Services, a facility that provides family and child counseling in many modalities combined with psychiatric medical care. The inpatient rotation is at Children’s Recovery Center, an adolescent facility focused on treatment of dual diagnosis and trauma recovery.
Our outpatient treatment center is the Central Oklahoma Mental Health Center. There, residents manage the medical treatment and psychotherapy of community patients. They also participate in therapy groups. We have CBT, psychodynamic, and psychopharmacology supervisors among our faculty. We have also partnered with many local psychoanalysts for outside case consultation of therapy cases and theory instruction.
The highlight of the fourth year is our new Continuity Clinic. The aim of this clinic is both to facilitate the longer treatment of therapy cases and to teach residents a fee for service model of psychiatry. Additionally, we have partnered with local therapists for medication management of therapy cases. In this clinic we want to facilitate an experience of combined medication and therapy treatment with outside therapists.
We are dedicated to patient care and we have a passion for understanding the mind. The Faculty is excited about the education of residents and other students. On behalf of the Griffin Memorial Hospital Psychiatry Residency Training Program let me welcome any interest you may have in joining our program.
Griffin will be participating in the match (all five positions) with applications through ERAS.
