Psychiatry Residency Partnerships

Behavioral Health developed a collaborative partnership with Arrowhead Regional Medical Center (ARMC) and Loma Linda University Medical Center (LLUMC) to provide clinical experience to their Psychiatry Residents. ARMC’s post graduate year 3 residents train with DBH for 12 months, while LLUMC’s post graduate year 4 residents train with DBH for 1 to 3 months. The residents are provided a beneficial educational opportunity due to the volume and patient mix in the County.

Medical Student Partnerships

Behavioral Health has affiliation agreements with Loma Linda Medical School, Touro University College of Osteopathic Medicine, and Western University of Health Sciences to provide appropriate clinical experience situations and coordinate clinical learning experience for their 3rd or 4th year medical students. DBH and the medical schools plan and coordinate the assignment of medical students to specific clinical cases and experiences, including selected conferences, clinics, courses, and programs.

Medical Assistant Internships

Behavioral Health is working with Colton-Redlands-Yucaipa Regional Occupational Program (CRY-ROP) to continue to grow and develop the Medical Assistant Internship. Medical Assistants are given the clinical experience to learn about mental health conditions, common medications, and other areas of interest in Psychiatry. The Medical Assistants are at DBH for 4 weeks.
