GME Orientation

  • Please note that PSPC’s Psychiatry Training Observership does not  have the approval of the commission and is not accredited by ACGME. The Program will not qualify a physician for limited licensure in Washington and does not qualify  as a program acceptable to the Commission for the purposes of the two year post-graduate medical training requirement for full licensure as a physician. Any physician enrolled in the program will not be able to practice medicine, unless the physician is licensed in Washington. The Program will not count as experience in a residency training program for the purposes of board certification.

All new trainees are required to attend a mandatory GME Institutional Orientation before beginning the training year. Orientation is routinely scheduled for the third week in June for first year trainees and July 1st and 2nd for PGY 2’s and above.

An Occupational Medicine pre-employment drug screening and Criminal Background Check are required components of GME onboarding for trainees as well as for visiting trainees.
