About the speaker:
Matt Hirschtritt is a fourth-year trainee in the Adult Psychiatry Residency Program and the Residency Research Training Program at UCSF. He completed his undergraduate degree in psychology from Cornell University, after which he participated in the Intramural Research Training Award program at the National Institute of Mental Health, where he assisted with research into the etiology and treatment of autism and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). He then completed his MD and MPH degrees from Case Western Reserve University, during which he first came to UCSF as a Doris Duke Clinical Research Scholar before beginning his residency training. In addition to his work in autism and OCD, Matt has published research on various mental health topics, from Tourette syndrome and adolescent depression and substance abuse, to trends in opioid and benzodiazepine prescribing and victimization and suicidality among adolescents. His current interests relate to mental health services research, with a focus on underserved populations, such as court-involved and incarcerated individuals. He plans to begin the forensic psychiatry fellowship at UCSF in July, 2018.
