Biography

Mike Duncan is an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and a licensed psychologist in the OHSU Resident and Faculty Wellness Program.  He earned his B.A. in psychology at the University of Colorado at Boulder and his M.S. and Psy.D. in clinical psychology at Pacific University.  He has conducted research on risk and protective factors in queer youth and the relation between internalized sexual prejudice and sense of belonging in queer graduate students.  Dr. Duncan’s experience prior to OHSU includes various multi-disciplinary community health settings working with adults having experienced significant trauma and marginalization, and at high risk for addiction, homelessness, suicide, domestic violence, and other poor health outcomes.  Dr. Duncan’s current clinical interests include supporting healthcare professionals with vicarious trauma, stress management, work-life balance, identity development, major life transitions, and intimate relationship improvement.  He has additional interest in supporting LGBTQ+ medical professionals, though he works with patients of all sexual orientations and gender identities.  He aims to help his patients enhance their self-awareness to strengthen agency and redirect intention with respect to each individual’s unique needs.  In a high-stress and demanding medical culture, this allows for a broadening of one’s conception of authenticity and wellness with the goal of finding deeper meaning and fulfillment in medical work while improving overall well-being and quality of life.
