‘It should be on the bookshelf of everyone in Medicine, not just those in Psychiatry’
This year’s Alan Stoudemire Award—for innovation and excellence in C-L Psychiatry education—goes to Omar Mirza, DO, academic psychiatrist, Harlem Hospital NYC Health + Hospitals.
The ACLP award is given to an individual or group who has/have developed and/or led a creative educational program in C-L Psychiatry directed at any experience level—from medical students to board-certified physicians—that is outstanding by virtue of its excellence, innovation, and impact.
His project at Harlem Hospital, within a program entitled Psychographica (Graphic Medicine), was originally designed for Psychiatry residents, but his audience has expanded to include medical students rotating through Psychiatry, medical and psychiatric residents, C-L Psychiatry fellows, and practicing clinicians with an interest in ethics and or medical decision-making.
The C-L Psychiatrist project is designed to teach health care providers general concepts in C-L Psychiatry. In its first volume, Dr. Mirza introduces his dynamic model for decisional capacity assessments.
“Readers can expect to walk away from this inaugural volume with an advanced understanding of capacity and an appreciation for the graphic medicine medium as a learning tool,” says Dr. Mirza.
