JACKSONVILLE, FL – InSight Telepsychiatry was invited to present during Grand Rounds at the University of Florida College of Medicine-Jacksonville on January 14, 2020 from 12-1pm for the Department of Psychiatry.

Shelley Sellinger, MD, a psychiatrist specializing in adult services including anxiety and depression, sexual and gender issues, substance use and addiction, trauma and abuse, and psychopharmacology presented to the group. Dr. Sellinger has more than two decades of psychiatry experience and has been practicing telepsychiatry for over five years. Prior to joining InSight as a telepsychiatry provider, Dr. Sellinger provided clinical outpatient services, worked in various locations with Psychiatric Locums, assisted the Sullivan County, New York, Department of Human Services as a psychiatry consultant, and has been operating her own private practice.

In her presentation entitled, Telepsychiatry: Modern Medicine, Old Fashioned Care, Dr. Sellinger reviewed the benefits and challenges of practicing telepsychiatry, various settings where telepsychiatry can be applied, clinical lessons learned and best practices. Additionally, Dr. Sellinger discussed her personal experience with telepsychiatry and working with an assertive community treatment team.

As an appropriate demonstration of telemedicine’s technological capabilities, Dr. Sellinger presented via videoconference. Those in attendance were left with a few “Telepsychiatry Takeaways” to remember as they continue their work in the mental health field.

Presenting to residents about telepsychiatry is important. The American Psychiatric Association has found that while the commercial sector has rapidly adopted telepsychiatry, academia is accepting it at a much slower pace. This is concerning because it means that psychiatrists working in telepsychiatry may not have appropriate training prior to starting their careers.

InSight is the leading national telepsychiatry service provider organization with over two decades of telepsychiatry experience and a mission to increase access to quality behavioral health care through innovative applications of technology. We are dedicated to ensuring residential training programs are readying residents for the way psychiatric care is increasingly being delivered.
