Clinical Research and Trials

Our practice has been involved clinical trials for the use of TMS in adolescence, postpartum patients, and real-world studies.  We also conduct ongoing research in the use of novel therapies such as CBD, Botox, ketamine, and other forms of neuromodulation. We work extensively with the National Network of Depression Centers (NNDC) on the latest clinical trials in mental health care.

Integrative Psychiatry conducted one of the first “real world” studies on the effectiveness of transcranial magnetic stimulation in a private practice setting. The findings were published in the September, 2011, issue of the Journal of the Kentucky Medical Association.

Our TMS program was one of 42 clinical sites (both university and private practice) that participated in a large “real world setting” study of TMS. In this naturalistic, observational study of TMS, acute response and remission rates were similar to those observed in previous research populations. We were a leading recruitment site for the TMS adolescent depression study.

Training for Physicians, Clinicians, & Students

Integrative Psychiatry has been involved in the training of physicians at the University of Louisville School of Medicine Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, and medical students from University of Louisville School of Medicine, Pikeville College of Medicine, and other medical schools from across the country. Doctors and medical students routinely come to our practice to learn interventional psychiatry and receive intensive and advanced training from our experienced physicians. Drs. Schrodt, and Farooqui are all gratis faculty at the University and routinely supervise and lecture doctors in training and medical students. Our physicians are the course directors for interventional psychiatry at the UL Department of Psychiatry.

National Network of Depression Centers

Our physicians are proud to be a part of the dynamic evolution of patient care. We are affiliated with the University of Louisville Depression Center and actively advocate for our patients with the National Network of Depression Center.  Our goal is to bring the latest and most up to date treatment options directly to our patients. Our physicians are members of various national task groups to improve patient care.

In addition to our clinical practice, the physicians at Integrative Psychiatry service our community locally and our profession nationally. Our physicians are members of the Clinical TMS Society, the American Psychiatric Association, the Kentucky Medical Association, the Greater Louisville Medical Society, the Southern Psychiatric Association, and the Kentucky Psychiatric Medical Association. Our physicians have served as presidents of various medical societies, chairs of scientific committees, and members of boards of trustees for these organizations.  In addition, we are involved in advocacy for access and expansion of psychiatric care for our patients.
