Suzanne Murray, MD

Personal Statement

My passion for patient care is the core of who I am as a physician.  As a consultation-liaison (C-L) psychiatrist, I have unique and broad teaching opportunities. The C-L role lets me teach non-psychiatrist peers, trainees from other specialties, and professionals from other disciplines. I particularly like helping providers to understand their patients’ psychiatric ailments, the complex interplay among psychiatric conditions and general medical problems, and the goals for recovery. Furthermore, I provide active support to patients and their families as they navigate our highly complex medical system with their illnesses and fears. Since the beginning of my tenure, I have been involved in the administrative aspects of medical student, resident and fellow training and curricular development.  Education is the common thread that unites all of my academic activities.  I have served as an Associate Program Director for 13 years at UWMC, Program Director of the Adult Psychiatry Residency program for 5 years and now work in CL psychiatry at the VA Puget Sound Health Care System.  I am currently the Associate Program Director (APD) for the site and a core APD for Evaluation of our residency program.
