Psychological Medicine

Our Psychological Medicine services include an Inpatient Consultation Service and specialized services for patients receiving medical and surgical services at Yale New Haven Hospital who also have significant psychiatric illnesses.

The Psychiatric Inpatient Consultation Service provides psychiatric consultation to patients admitted to other areas throughout Yale New Haven Hospital, — including internal medicine, surgery, obstetrics and gynecology and other clinical services — who are experiencing significant psychiatric symptoms or problems. We offer a range of services, including psychiatric evaluation, collaboration with medical specialists and arrangement for follow-up behavioral healthcare when needed.

We also provide psychiatric services within Yale New Haven Transplantation Center, the Nathan Smith Clinic (for AIDS and HIV-related illnesses) and the Primary Care Center. A psychiatrist and other mental health professionals work with medical/surgical physicians and staff to provide diagnosis and brief treatments for patients with both significant medical illness and psychiatric symptoms.
