  • Note that there are individual courses taught as part of graduate studies programs: There are or have been specific GMH courses (GMH overviews), George Washington University (Dr. Eliot Sorel, Dr. Brandon Kohrt), Columbia University (Dr. Kathleen Pike), Fordham University (Dr. Andrew Rasmussen), and Johns Hopkins University (Dr. Judith Bass). Also note the ongoing special GMH seminars and additional courses as part of GMH programs at Columbia University, Yale University, University of Washington, University of Toronto, etc. and at schools of public health. There are a growing number of emphases in psychiatry programs on GMH that include options for training and experience. Psychology programs for the most part are not yet including these options.
