Why Mental Health Clinicians Should Measure Outcomes and Contribute to Research

Psychiatry Ground Rounds, May 18, 2022

Huntsman Mental Health Institute (HMHI) is pleased to welcome Jeremy Kendrick, MD, as our Department of Psychiatry Grand Rounds speaker on May 18, 2022. Dr. Kendrick's presentation is titled "Come On In, the Water's Fine: Making the Case for Measuring Outcomes and Participating in Clinician-Driven Research at HMHI."

Dr. Kendrick is an Assistant Professor (Clinical) in the University of Utah Department of Psychiatry at HMHI. After completing a residency in pediatrics and a combined residency/fellowship in adult, child, and adolescent psychiatry, he joined the faculty. Dr. Kendrick currently provides inpatient psychiatric care for children and adolescents at HMHI. He also works with adults in HMHI's Treatment Resistant Mood Disorders Clinic and is particularly interested in neurostimulation and ketamine infusions to treat severe refractory mental illness.

As both a pediatrician and a psychiatrist, Dr. Kendrick is interested in the process of collaboration between primary care providers and specialists. He and three of his colleagues created GATE, a unique, web-based program that facilitates consultations between primary care physicians and psychiatrists. Additionally, he is a proponent of using standardized measures to quantify clinical outcomes and analyzing the data to enhance practices. He was appointed by the University as a provider informaticist and is heavily involved in utilizing electronic health records to improve provider efficiency and positively impact patient care.

Watch his presentation virtually via Zoom ( on Wednesday, May 18 at Noon, MST.
