Fuehrlein honored by APA for resident teaching

Brian Fuehrlein, MD, PhD, Assistant Professor of Psychiatry, was honored by the American Psychiatric Association with its Irma Bland Award for outstanding and sustained contributions to resident education.

The award recognizes APA members who have taught at their nominating institution for at least three years. The award is competitive; in 2016, seven physicians were honored nationally.

Fuehrlein, Director of the Psychiatric Emergency Room at the VA Connecticut Healthcare System in West Haven, joined the Yale faculty in 2014. He has a strong interest in teaching medical students, residents, and fellows, and in developing medical school and residency curriculum.

He completed a fellowship in addiction psychiatry at Yale after graduating from the MD/PhD program at the University of Florida in 2008.
