USCF PSYCHIATRIC RESIDENT PARTNERSHIP
Edgewood partners with the University of California San Francisco’s Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry to provide resident training programs that develop core skills essential to the current and future practice of the profession. We offer diverse and challenging clinical, didactic, and supervisory experiences. UCSF and Edgewood also provide a clinical rotation for medical students interested in a career in psychiatry. We train about 5 percent of the child psychiatrists graduating in the US each year.
Youth Agency Mental Health Consultation
Through free on-site consultation, Edgewood partners with San Francisco agencies increasing their capacity to effectively serve at-risk youth by maximizing organizational strengths and staff potential. We offer the following services as part of our consultations:
- Meet with your agency’s leadership to understand your needs and clarify next steps,
- Work closely with agency staff to identify and evaluate strengths and vulnerabilities
- Share findings with staff and facilitate process to prioritize goals
- Supportive services as consultant transitions out upon completion of intervention implementation
Agencies who serve youth (ages 12-24) in San Francisco and do not provide psychotherapy with masters-level staff are eligible for consultation services.
