A few words from Psychology Students

“Working in psychiatry and taking classes at FIT, I have been able to incorporate both my work life into my schooling and my schooling into my work life. During meetings, I have been able to talk about things the unit or patients may need and staff listened. Since attending FIT, I have been able to put together a clinical practice group for psychiatry, and request and get recreational therapy and hospital school for the minor children who have been in the emergency department more than 24 hours.”
