Wade Reiner, MD

My interest in the intersection of biology and life stories led me to major in Psychological and Brain Sciences at Johns Hopkins University and to enroll in the psychiatry residency training program at Washington University in St. Louis. Since completing training, I have had an excellent experience working at UW/Harborview’s emergency and inpatient psychiatry services.  It has been a pleasure teaching and learning from medical students and residents while working alongside diverse teams (of committed nurses, mental health specialists, and social workers) to connect with and care for our patients. My teaching interests include the psychiatric interview, documentation, and fundamentals of clinical decision-making. Clinically, I enjoy taking a holistic approach to care, utilizing interventions across behavioral changes, pharmacology, and skill development through talk therapy. Lastly, I plan to further pursue my interest in the intersection of technology and healthcare by continuing to provide guidance to Seattle-based  mental health-related start-ups.
