mills2525 Posted June 22, 2018 Share Posted June 22, 2018 Just starting out as a PA on an inpatient unit managing medical issues, I think it will be good for me to use and strengthen medical knowledge while being around a psych population early in my career. There is opportunity to take on some psych patients of my own eventually. Any advice moving forward about how to strengthen skills in conducting a psychiatric interview effectively ? I feel this was not stressed in school and I got minimal practice on rotations. Eventually I might like to move into outpatient or into a job with more psychiatric responsibility. How would I obtain skills in CBT administration? There seem to be some training institutes. Are those necessary? They also want some therapy hrs recorded before signing up. Any advice is much appreciated. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
