Outpatient clinic space expands

Department news | May 31, 2022

Thanks to a commitment on the part of UWMC leadership to increase behavioral health access for our patients, the UW Outpatient Psychiatric Clinic (OPC) on Roosevelt is enlarging its footprint over the coming year. This will allow OPC to host more psychiatry residents for continuity clinics and will enable us to bring on board additional psychology and psychiatry faculty. Beyond increased patient access, this new space will also allow us to develop more specialty clinics. OPC has already been growing its perinatal, geriatrics, addictions, PTSD, DBT, and group psychotherapy services. The expanded space will also be helpful for patients who prefer in-person, rather than telehealth, care.
