Psychiatry Program and Spiritually Integrated Treatment

CareNet has established a relationship with the Department of Psychiatry at Wake Forest Medical Center to provide academic lectures in spiritually integrated treatment for the psychiatric residents beginning in August. It is part of the psychiatry department’s commitment to exposing the residents to more integrated approaches to psychiatry by teaching them about the importance of spirituality to their patients. CareNet will also begin embedding fourth year psychiatric residents in our CareNet Winston-Salem clinic with an eye to expanding those positions across the state to other CareNet clinics. The long-term hope is that we will have psychiatrists entering into communities who really understand the impact of faith as it relates to treatment.

 

We will also be connecting our master’s level psychology residents with medical residents in psychiatry. Professionals from different guilds and disciplines, as we try to solve the health care crisis, are entering into conversations realizing that we have more in common than not. We are getting out of our professional silos to benefit the community at large. We see this new relationship as an important step in that direction.
