NP Resident David Kerek named Physician of the Month!

The Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences and the Department of Neurology and Neurosurgery at the Medical University of South Carolina offer an integrated training program that prepares residents for specialty board eligibility in both Psychiatry and Neurology in just six years.

The growth of neuroscience research in the last decade has provided an opportunity to bring together areas of medicine that have drifted apart. This program is based on the belief that psychiatry and neurology are intimately related medical specialties that should be mutually enriching. Physicians with expertise in both psychiatry and neurology will be in a unique position to offer leadership in academic, research and clinical roles in the future.

This is a six-year program consisting of an internship year, followed by four alternating years of neurology and psychiatry, and finally an integrated PGY-6 year of both psychiatry and neurology. There is ongoing participation in clinics and case conferences of both specialties throughout the program. Additionally, there is a monthly journal club/didactic session. The program is increasingly linking the program curriculum with that developed by the American Neuropsychiatric Association.
