Yale Graduate Awarded Goodrich Fellowship

In September, the Institute of Living welcomed Emily Farb, N-P, APRN, to the Annie Goodrich Psychiatric Nurse Fellowship Program.

Farb, a graduate of the Yale University School of Nursing, is the second-ever nurse practitioner to participate in the program, which is one of the few nurse fellowships in the country. She will serve in the child and adolescent division, and in October 2019, fellows will be accepted into both the adult and geriatric divisions.

The fellowship is a nine-month intensive program, which includes inter-professional education with post-graduate physicians and psychologists. It was named after Annie Goodrich, MD, an internationally-known nurse scholar and visionary, who was the first dean of Yale University School of Nursing and consulting director of the nursing service at the Institute of Living’s Neuropsychiatric Institute from 1938-1941.
