Please note that the program number as listed in the Graduate Medical Education Directory (green book) and the full accreditation status of the program remained the same. Importantly, the balanced nature of the program with traditional psychodynamics blending with modern neuroscience and its emphasis on the biopsychosocial model did not change. All clinical rotations, didactics, and faculty remained the same, making this transition a smooth one in the experience of the trainees.
