by Robin Deutsch, PhD
SFCP is happy to welcome two APsaA Fellows for the 2015-2016 Academic year.

SFCP is honored that two of this year’s fellows come from the Bay Area: Rachel Winer, MD, and Karen Mu, MD.
KAREN J. MU, MD, PHD recently completed her child and adolescent psychiatry fellowship at UC San Francisco and is a 2015-2016 APsaA Fellow. She grew up in countries as disparate as Japan, the U.S., Canada, Korea, Belgium, and Cote d'Ivoire, an upbringing that cultivated an early interest in culture and behavior. At the University of Washington, she studied music, piano performance and developed an interest in neuroscience. She completed her medical degree and PhD in Comparative Pathology at UC Davis. During her post-graduate training at UCSF, she was the Co-PI on a study exam- ining the relationship between psychiatric co-morbidities, shame and BMI in adolescents. Her current professional interests include integrated care, parent and child therapy, and eating disorders. Following graduation, she plans to work as a psychiatrist in the clinic and integrative care setting with patients of all ages for the City and County of San Francisco and continue her training at SFCP in the Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Training Program.
