Woodcock Memorial Lecture
One important feature of the program which is highlighted in this video is the Woodcock Memorial Lecture. The Woodcock Lecture is named after Dr. Herbert Woodcock, a pioneering child and adolescent psychiatrist in the division whose zeal for incorporating insights from psychoanalytic theory lives on in the training program today. Each year the Woodcock Weekend provides fellows with the opportunity to connect with a prominent child and adolescent psychoanalyst or psychoanalytic theorist. The weekend offers fellows the chance for a small-group discussion, case conference, dinner, and a formal lecture provided by the invited presenter(s).
The OHSU Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Training Program was established in 1968 by Hal Boverman, Herbert Woodcock, John Lingus M.D, Bill Sack, and Ivan Inger. The subsequent 40 years of education and service to the community have greatly influenced mental health policy, the lives of many thousands of children and families, and the functioning of agencies across our region.
We are one of only a few training programs in the large territory of Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Wyoming. We have successfully maintained continuous ACGME accreditation for our two-year fellowship in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.
Created Dr. Nancy Winters who was the training director from 1996-2006, this 15-minute documentary provides some history of the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry program at OHSU.
