“I think of the doctor-patient relationship as a team,” Roy said. “I bring a certain expertise in mental health and a certain expertise in the medication, and the patient or person seeking my help has an expertise in themselves. We have to work together as a team to figure out the best course of action.”
Roy worked at the Virginia Hospital Center since 2012. Prior to that, she was an instructor of psychiatry at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine from 2008 to 2011.
The position that Roy will fill at W&M was created as part of an ongoing effort by the Division of Student Affairs to maintain and strengthen the health and wellness of the student body
