J. Chase Findley, M.D., attending physician at UTHealth Harris County Psychiatric Center, is Director of Medical Student Education and Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences. Appointed in January 2017, he has embraced his new role and brings a fresh perspective that appeals to students. Dr. Findley recently participated in the McGovern Medical School’s curriculum redesign, which now includes Psychiatry in all four years of study. With a greater emphasis on integrating the neurosciences (psychiatry, neurology and neurobiology), the new Nervous System and Behavior Module will provide second-year medical students with a clinically-focused and interdisciplinary approach to the field of Psychiatry. In addition, Dr. Findley is the Psychiatry faculty advisor for the Student Interest Group in Neurology and Psychiatry (SIGN/P), where he works to cultivate students’ interest in the neurosciences early in their careers and recruit future psychiatrists.¬†Always involved in medical student education, his greatest interest has been preparing fourth-year students for their transition from medical school to residency.

Dr. Findley completed medical school and psychiatry residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio before joining our department in 2013. His clinical interest is in the treatment of patients with severe mental illnesses, including mood disorders and schizophrenia, in an inpatient hospital setting.
