Laureate Psychiatric Clinic and Hospital is a private, not-for-profit psychiatric facility that is affiliated with the Saint Francis Health System. The Saint Francis Health System also includes four medical-surgical hospitals and over 450 primary care and specialty physician practices. Laureate provides mental health treatment services for adults and seniors across the full continuum of care. Outpatient Services are provided for children and adolescents.  Substance abuse treatment is provided for adults.

The hospital includes 106 beds for people who need inpatient, residential, or partial hospital levels of care. The Laureate Clinic provides over 55,000 outpatient and intensive outpatient services per year.  Our Eating Disorders Program is nationally recognized as a center of excellence for the treatment of these disorders. Laureate is also actively involved in research and professional training. The Laureate Institute for Brain Research has a team of scientists who are conducting neuroimaging studies using state-of-the-art technology.

The Laurate intern is considered a valuable member of the treatment team on our Adult Behavioral Health Units.  The Adult Behavioral Health Units provide acute and partial hospital services to adults, ages 18 to 55, requiring medical supervision for mental health issues. The primary reasons for admission include danger to self or others, severe functional impairment, medication stabilization, and detoxification. The intern works with a multi-disciplinary team that includes psychiatrists, psychiatry residents, nurses, master’s trained mental health professionals, drug and alcohol counselors, and activity therapists. The Adult Behavioral Health Units serve as a primary training site for psychiatry residents affiliated with the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center at Tulsa.

The responsibilities of the intern include completing psychosocial assessments, developing treatment plans, providing individual and family therapy, facilitating psychotherapy groups, and providing case management services. The intern also provides psychological testing services for purposes of differential diagnosis, determining current cognitive functioning, and ruling out malingering.

Every year, the intern is asked to complete a consultation/program development project with the goal of enhancing services provided on the Units. Previous projects have included developing evidence based curricula for use in psychoeducational and psychotherapy groups; providing training to direct care, nursing, and case management staff; and developing a multi-family group to assist family members who have a loved one receiving care.

Interns are invited to participate in Laureate’s staff development and continuing education programs. These programs include all day workshops and monthly neuroscience and case conferences.
