Professor of Psychiatry and Human Behavior


After graduating from Brown with a degree in American Lit, I got my MD at Tufts Medical School. Since I was going into psychiatry, I did a rotating internship emphasizing surgery, mostly at Boston City Hospital, after which I moved to California for residency. I did two years of adult psychiatry residency at the San Mateo County Community Mental Health Center, two years of child psychiatry residency at Stanford and a year of research fellowship (also at Stanford) prior to joining the Stanford faculty in 1977. There I directed the consultation-liaison service in the Childrens Hospital and was involved in pediatric oncology research until moving to the Brown Medical School/ Rhode Island Hospital in 1985. At Brown, I have held a number of clinical and administrative positions and have pursued a variety of clinical research projects in pediatric psychiatry or psychosomatic medicine. I am currently Professor and Director of the Division of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Interim Associate
Chair of the Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior as well as Academic Director at Bradley Hospital and Director of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Hasbro Childrens Hospital/RI Hospital.
