Public Psychiatry Fellowship Annual Report 2010-11


Highlights:

The Fellowship continues to promote the development of new and existing Public Psychiatry Fellowship programs around the country. Fifteen programs are now in existence, almost all of which have been created in the past five years and most of which have consulted with the PPF faculty in their development. Four are led by PPF alumni: Pat Runnels at Case Western, Serena Volpp at NYU and Osman Ali at the University of Texas Southwestern in Dallas and the newest, Christina Mangurian at the University of California, San Francisco.

Drs Ranz and Deakins continued their column in Psychiatry Services, called Case Studies in Public-Sector Leadership, simulating discussions that take place when alumni present their roles to Fellows. The third column was published by Tomer Levin et al, and is titled Using a Psychiatry E-List to Develop a Model for Discussing a Schizophrenia Diagnosis. Psychiatric Services 2011 62: 244-246. Several more columns are in development stages.

In the past year, a new Program for Publi Psychiatry Education (PPE) was created with Jules Ranz as director, Stephanie LeMelle as co-director and Michael Weinberg as Research Director. In conjundction with the Mental Health Services of the Group for the Advancement of Psychiatry (GAP), PPE concluded a Systems -Based Practices (SBP) Instrument study with IRB approval at each of 12 residency programs throughout the country. This culminated in a publication submitted to Academic Psychiatry. The study yielded a Four Factor Model of SBP which has informed recommendations submitted to the Psychiatry RRC for the revision of the ACGME expectations for SBP. The four factors are conceived of as four roles carried out by the psychiatrist: patient care advocate, team members, information integrator and resource manager. PPE is current carrying out the IRB-approved SBP Consultation Project, underway at four sites (Columbia, Cornell, St. Luke's Roosevelt adult programs and Columbia/Cornell child program). Additional training programs have contacted us requesting consultations. 
 

The 2010-11 class consists of 10 fellows working in a wide variety of settings. Two Fellows are working at State Psychiatric Centers, Rockland and Manhattan PCs. Four fellows are working at community-based agencies: Project Renewal, the Program for Psychiatric Outreach to the Homeless, Hamilton Madison House and Community Access. One Fellow is placed at St Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital. Two Fellows are placed in OMH, one working in the office of Lloyd Sederer (OMH Medical Director) and a second in the office of ppf alum, Molly Finnerty.

    Public Psychiatry Fellowship Annual Report  2007-08


Highlights:

In response to requests for consultations from psychiatrists planning on developing public psychiatry fellowship training programs at eight academic medical centers throughout the nation, the Public Psychiatry faculty has developed seven core elements which they view as essential for such a training program.  A manuscript describing these elements, entitled  “Core Elements of a Public Psychiatry Fellowship”,  has been  published in the July 2008 issue of Psychiatric Services: Ranz JM,  Deakins SM, LeMelle SM, Rosenheck SD, Kellermann SL: Core Elements of a Public Psychiatry Fellowship. Psychiatric Services 59: 718-720, 2008

In October 2007, the Fellowship was awarded the 2007 Lilly Reintegration Award, Education-First place.

Drs Ranz and Deakins guest edited a second section in the March 2008 issue of Psychiatric Quarterly entitled “The Role of the Medical Director in Public Mental Health Organizations”  The section contained three articles written by alumni Claire Henderson, Julie Maggi and Juliana Ekong.

Public Psychiatry Fellowship Annual Report 2004-2005

Highlight: An extraordinary number of alumni  are currently serving in leadership positions in the New York metropolitan area,
including four Clinical Directors (plus one Director of Psychiatry) at the eight downstate Psychiatric Centers (*) and five alumni in high level positions in city and county agencies (**)

    Clinical Director, Pilgrim Psychiatric Center*
    Clinical Director, South Beach Psychiatric Center*
    Clinical Director, Rockland Psychiatric Center (Scott Clark)*
    Clinical Director, New York State Psychiatric Institute*
    Director of Psychiatry,  South Beach Psychiatric Center (Intikhab Ahmad)*
    Chief Medical Officer, NYC Department of Mental Hygeine (Hunter McQuistion)**
    Agency Medical Director, NYC Department of Homeless Services (Dova Marder)**
    Associate Commissioner, Program Services, NYC Department of Mental Hygeine (Jorge Petit)**
    Clinical Director , Ulster County Mental Health Services (Mary Barber)**
    Medical Director, Special Projects, NYC Department of Mental Hygeine (Andrew Kolodny)**


The Public Psychiatry Fellowship continues to attract outstanding Fellows as the premier Fellowship of its type in the country. For the first time ever, the incoming class of 2005-06 will have a majority (7 out of 10 ) Fellows coming from out of state, including Colorado, California, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Louisiana and Montreal, Canada.

The Fellowship has invested a lot of attention to development of its alumni network over the past few years.  It is common for psychiatrists working in the public sector to  experience  feelings of isolation, lack of professional affiliation and marginalization within their organizations. The Fellowship has had considerable documented success in helping Fellows and alumni deal with these problems. It does so by providing them with a conceptual orientation and by offering the ongoing support necessary to sustain productive careers in the public sector. In most cases, the Fellows field placement becomes the first year of a public sector job.  Ongoing support is achieved by continued involvement in Fellowship activities after completing the one-year Fellowship, and includes individual presentations to subsequent Fellows, ongoing consultations with the faculty, group meetings and an e-mail network.  The faculty believes this ongoing support to be crucial to the success of the Fellowship.

An unusual development in 2004-05 is that three Fellows had, as field placements,  jobs they were working in before they applied to the fellowship. Two of these completed residency training more than 10 years ago.  Most Fellows have chosen  non-traditional field placements. Three Fellows are working in programs serving the homeless, 2 on ACT teams, 1 for Disaster Psychiatry Outreach  and 1 in a collaborative venture with child psychiatry.  Only 3 are working in hospitals, 2 on inpatient wards and 1 in an outpatient setting.

Public Psychiatry Fellowship Annual Report 2003-2004

The Public Psychiatry Fellowship continues to attract outstanding Fellows as the premier Fellowship of its type in the country. Applicants in the past few years have come from Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Maryland, Washington DC, Texas, California and Oregon. This year we have Fellows from Canada, England and Korea.

Fellows continue to work in non-traditional settings in increasing numbers. This year’s class consists of  ten fellows. Two Fellows are working in programs serving the homeless, two in primary care settings, one at Fountain House, one at an Addiction Institute, and one at the NYC  Department of Mental Health. Only two are working in hospital-based outpatient settings.

The Fellowship continues to investigate the role of the psychiatrist as medical director in public agencies. After publishing three articles on surveys of Public Psychiatry Fellowship alumni, Dr. Ranz expanded his research through surveys of  the membership of two national organizations, the American Association of Community Psychiatrists (AACP) and the American Association of Psychiatric Administrators (AAPA). These surveys provided new and valuable information about the role of the psychiatrist as medical director in public agencies, and the results were published in three additional peer-reviewed articles. Dr. Ranz has completed a new survey of  the membership of the AACP examining Factors Impinging on Public Psychiatrists over the past Five Years. and two resulting papers have been accepted for publication this year in Community Mental Health Journal. Last year Dr. Ranz was asked to do a survey of the Medical Director’s Council of the National Association of State Mental Health Program Directors (NASMHPD). That survey has been completed and the results are being written up for publication.

Alumni now lead ALL the major local psychiatric associations:

Scott Masters is president of the APA NY District Branch, Andrew Kolodny is chair of the DB's Public Psychiatry Committee

Hugh Cummings is presidents of the APA Westchester District Branch.

Warren Ng is president of the NY Council of the Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.

Tony Ng is Area II Representative to the American Association of Community Psychiatrists

Richard Gersh is president, and Andrew Kolodny president-elect of the NY Chapter of the American Association of Psychiatric Administrators
