KEYNOTE SPEAKER

Linda Godleski

Dr. Linda Godleski, MD, was a Berkeleyite, Yale Class of ’78, in the Kingman Brewster days when Yale first accepted female undergraduates. Following graduation, her career led her to interesting and exotic places, but Yale ultimately lured her back. Thinking she could leave the Northeast for warmer, more gentile environments, she completed medical school and psychiatry residency at the University of Virginia. She remained on as faculty at UVA and as Director of the University of Virginia's Psychiatric Research Unit at Staunton's Western State Hospital. Leaving academia, she began a solo private practice in psychiatry in Florida, but returned to her work with chronic mental illness when offered a position as Associate Professor at the University of Hawaii. While in Hawaii, she enjoyed opportunities as visiting faculty throughout Micronesia, in Palau and Pohnpei.

Virtually nothing could lure her away from this idyllic setting….except being offered a position at Yale as Associate Professor of Psychiatry, and more importantly, a Berkeley fellow appointment! Though family reasons forced her to leave again shortly afterwards, she ultimately returned to her Yale appointment and now works at the VA Connecticut Healthcare Center as the Associate Chief of Staff for Education for the Yale academic affiliation there. Dr. Godleski is also the VHA National Lead for Telemental Health, and promotes implementation of technological opportunities to deliver mental health care to remote areas. She has published widely, and presented at many national and international conferences, including expert testimony before Congress. She welcomes the opportunity to talk with any students about life at Yale, psychiatry, or career choices
