Tom Soeprano named new director of CL Psychiatry

Department news | October 27, 2022

Over the past ten years, the UW Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry Fellowship has risen to one of the top programs in the country under the directorship of Marcella Pascualy, MD. As Dr. Pascualy steps down to enjoy retirement at the end of June 2023, we are happy to announce that Tom Soeprono, MD, has been selected to become the next Program Director of the Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry Fellowship.

With the assistance of our outstanding associate program directors, Amelia Dubovsky, MD, and Julia Ruark, MD, MPH, and our nationally recognized consultation-liaison faculty, Dr. Pascualy has provided top-notch training to over 30 trainees with a focus on Integrated Care, Oncology, Transplant Psychiatry, Neuropsychiatry, Cardiology, Pain, Women’s Mental Health, Addictions, HIV, Geriatrics and Addictions. Many graduates of the fellowship have stayed in the WWAMI region, joined the faculty or have gone back to their home institutions to serve in prominent positions.

Dr. Soeprono is an example of one such graduate. He joined our faculty in 2015 after completing his Psychiatry Residency and Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry Fellowship at the UW. Since joining the faculty, he has established himself as a consummate educator, clinician and mentor. He has been very active in national psychiatry-related professional organizations and is well poised to step into the Program Director role and build upon the successful program Dr. Pascualy has led.

We thank Dr. Pascualy for her tremendous contributions to this important fellowship program and congratulate Dr. Soeprono on this new leadership role.
