Clinical and Research Interests
As director of clinical services since 1998, Dr. Leung administers and supervises all aspects of clinical practice in the Department of Psychiatry at OHSU. In addition, he has been director of the OHSU Intercultural Psychiatric Program (IPP) since 1990, providing mental health care to immigrant and ethnic minority patients from 17 language groups. In 1995 and again in 2003, the American College of Psychiatrists singled out the IPP resident training program for special recognition for Creativity in Psychiatric Education. IPP is the only program in the country to have won this award twice. Dr. Leung also consults as medical director to the Asian Health and Service Center in southeast Portland. A fluent speaker of Cantonese, Mandarin, and Vietnamese, he is often asked to provide forensic evaluations in court cases involving individuals with limited English- speaking skills.

Dr. Leung's research interests are centered in better understanding and improving treatments for Post-Traumatic-Stress Disorder (PTSD). He has published numerous papers in peer-reviewed journals, and has co-authored numerous chapters for textbooks in the field.
