Living outside the binary: why inclusive care matters
Devin is currently a fellow in UNC’s Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry Fellowship. He is a native Texan and grew up in Dallas, Texas. He went to college at the University of Texas (HOOK ‘EM HORNS!), where his biggest flex was attending National Championship football game his freshman year as a member of the Longhorn Band. After college, he moved to the sprawling metropolis of Houston, TX to attend medical school at the University of Texas Health Science Center. He then made the blasphemous decision to move out of Texas to complete his residency in General Psychiatry at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN, where he eventually became the chief resident of the CL service his 4th year. During his training, Devin became interested several areas of CL psychiatry and more broadly, topics related to resilience, mental health of gender and sexual minorities, narrative medicine, and psychiatric education. He is grateful to have matched at UNC for fellowship, which has afforded him opportunities to expand his knowledge base.
