The Salem VAMC is a large tertiary care referral center for psychiatry within the VA. Students will rotate on a 120-bed inpatient psychiatry service, as well as through our extensive ambulatory care programs serving approximately 45,000 visits per year. Each of these services is staffed by University of Virginia faculty who will closely supervise each student in the inpatient and outpatient management of neurobehavioral disorders.
