Ravi Ramasamy, MD

I am board certified in General Psychiatry and Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, and an acting Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Washington.  I am an attending physician on the Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine Unit at Seattle Children’s Hospital, where I provide acute inpatient treatment to patients with a broad range of diagnoses and presenting concerns.  I aim to provide high-quality evidence-based care as part of a multidisciplinary treatment team, while providing clinical supervision and education to CAP fellows, General Psychiatry Residents, and Medical Students.  I am involved in didactic education for the CAP fellows as the course director for Forensics, Ethics, and Professionalism (FEP), and for the medical students as the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry clerkship director for third year medical students.  In addition, I am the co-chair of the Equity Task Force for the Department of Psychiatry at Seattle Children’s Hospital.
