Specialty Training in Women’s Mental Health
Professional development opportunities for clinicians.
McLean’s Division of Women’s Mental Health is dedicated to offering professional development opportunities in the field of women’s mental health. By promoting clinician education, the division aims to strengthen the knowledge base of this emerging field and also support the ongoing mental well-being of girls and women.
Clinical Psychiatry Fellowship in Women’s Mental Health
With support from the Kathleen and Ronald Jackson Family Foundation and other donors, the division offers a clinical psychiatry fellowship to an early career psychiatrist who has completed residency training and wishes to pursue a fifth year of clinical training in women’s mental health.
In addition to two months of learning evidence-based best practices in each of the division’s clinical treatment programs, the fellow spends two months in the women’s mental health program at Brigham and Women’s Hospital learning about reproductive psychiatry, including treatment for women during the prepartum, pregnancy, and postpartum time periods, as well as during menopause.
In 2020, we welcomed our fourth fellow, Kayia Akoun, MD. The fellowship’s fifth fellow, Ranjani Logaraj, MD, will join the program in July 2021.
Our 2019-2020 fellow, Ashley Beaulieu, DO, now serves as psychiatrist-in-charge on McLean’s Trauma and Dissociative Disorders Inpatient Program. Our 2018-2019 fellow, Amanda Sedgewick, DO, is a psychiatrist-in-charge on our Alcohol, Drug, and Addiction Inpatient Program and continues her outpatient work with women and addiction, including women affected by intimate partner violence. Our 2017-2018 fellow, Anne Blythe Rose, MD, MPH, is now an attending psychiatrist in The Pavilion.
