The University Counseling Services Graduate Training Program provides a mandatory fourth-year rotation for psychiatric residents in the UCLA-San Fernando Valley residency program. As such, it provides an ongoing professional relationship between CSUN and the residency program, which includes Sepulveda Veterans Administration Hospital, Olive View Hospital, UCLA and the San Fernando Valley Mental Health Center.
Through the rotation, residents develop skills in diagnosing and treating the unique mental health issues of a diverse college-based population. Professional interface skills are also developed as residents consult with a wide range of mental health professionals and interns. Residents may see up to eight students per week and receive on-site psychiatric supervision. For further information, contact the coordinator of residency training, Judy Schmidt-Levy, Ph.D.
