Consultation Liaison Services

The UMC Consultation and Liaison service provides psychiatric and psychologic care to patients admitted to the ICU, medical, and surgical units. The care provided in the general hospital ensures patients receive a multidisciplinary treatment plan regardless of their current location or physical condition.

Specialized trauma psychology service

The specialized Trauma Psychology service provides proactive care to patients admitted to the Trauma Surgery Service by providing PTSD and depression screenings for all trauma patients.
