On Tuesday, June 20th, APP Psychiatry Training Program faculty and associates gathered to celebrate its 2023 graduating class: Rebecca VanDyke, PA-C; Gabrielle Totton, PA-C; Fariha Ghazi, PA-C; Abigail Plominski, PA-C; and Robert Hughes, PA-C (not pictured as he was not able to attend).
The Advanced Practice Provider (APP) Psychiatry Training is a post-graduate residency program which builds specialty mental health competencies and equips providers to work as an extension of Pine Rest’s psychiatrists. Not only is the program important for those who seek to advance their career in this area, it is also extremely valuable to our community as a whole, as individuals in need of care benefit from decreased wait times and improved access to services through the outstanding care our APPs provide.
Since joining Pine Rest, the 2023 class of APPs have served a combined 3,760+ patients and their families. We are so thrilled to celebrate these graduates for their accomplishments. Their passion and dedication makes a measurable difference when it comes to increasing access to mental health care in Michigan!
