She was also inducted into the prestigious Gold Humanism Honor Society (GHHS), which recognizes medical “students who are exemplars of compassionate patient care and who serve as role models, mentors, and leaders in medicine. GHHS members are peer nominated and are the ones that others say they want taking care of their own family.” (excerpt from www.gold-foundation.org)

Although initially deciding between pursuing a career in neurology or obstetrics and gynecology (OBGYN), Dr. Furey was drawn to the field of psychiatry because of its unparalleled clinical opportunities combining neuroscience, direct patient care, and the art of psychotherapy. These early interests in neurology and OBGYN influence her clinical practice as a reproductive psychiatrist. She pursued a four-year adult psychiatry residency at Yale University graduating in 2018. While at Yale, she was elected by her peers to serve as co-president of Yale’s Psychiatry Residency Association where she acted as a liaison between residents and faculty members. During residency, she learned the art of psychopharmacology and sought out additional training in psychotherapy (particularly psychodynamic psychotherapy), emergency psychiatry, and women’s mental health. She also participated in various teaching activities and published several journal articles. As a fourth year resident, she served dually as Chief Resident at the Connecticut Veterans Affairs Hospital’s Psychiatric Emergency Room and Outpatient PTSD Clinic.

Before transitioning into private practice, Dr. Furey worked at Yale University’s Mental Health and Counseling department providing psychotherapy and medication management to undergraduate and graduate students; at the Connecticut Veterans Affairs Hospital’s West Haven psychiatric emergency room and New London community-based outpatient clinic; and in collaboration with Yale New Haven Hospital treating medical and surgical residents.
