Post Graduate Year Three

Third-year residents gain advanced experience and training in outpatient clinics at the Mental Health Clinic in the North Little Rock VA, the Walker Family Clinic at PRI and the Community Mental Health Clinic. Also, one half day a week for 6 months residents participate in assertive community treatment at GAIN (Greater Assistance for those In Need). Residents also participate in one half day of psychotherapy with one hour a week of psychotherapy supervision. The lecture/seminar series includes advanced clinical topics and preparation for board exams.

Clinical Rotations
All third-year residents are assigned to a twelve month block of outpatient care in three diverse clinics: one, a general psychiatric clinic available to residents of the greater Little Rock area; two, a clinic serving the severely mentally ill who are mainstreamed into the general population; and three, a general clinic serving the mental health needs of our veterans.

On Thursday afternoons, 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. throughout the year, the PGY III’s attend two sessions of lectures/seminars. Some of the advanced clinical topics include substance abuse, clinical neuroscience, PTSD, sexual dysfunction, gender disorders and practice issues. Case conference subjects include forensics and short-term dynamic psychotherapy. The PGY III’s and IV’s also have a series of sessions on how to prepare for the oral board exam. These activities give the residents an opportunity to practice the interview portion of the exam with a faculty member who is a board examiner.
