Board-certified in both general psychiatry and addiction medicine, Dr. Chisolm has three decades of clinical experience in these fields. Dr. Chisolm has served as the Principal Investigator or co-investigator on multiple nationally-funded research projects and published over 100 scientific, clinical, and medical education papers on psychiatric disorders and humanistic medical practice, as well as articles (and one book) on the use of social media in medicine, a psychiatric textbook, and a book for patients and families (From Survive to Thrive: Living Your Best Life with Mental Illness). She has provided mentorship to all levels of trainees, as well as junior faculty in psychiatry, internal medicine, and other fields locally, nationally, and internationally. Dr. Chisolm is a member of the Johns Hopkins Miller Coulson Academy of Clinical Excellence and the Director of the Paul McHugh Program for Human Flourishing, where she uses the arts and humanities to explore the ‘big questions’ - what it means to be human, to be a physician, and to lead a good life (for doctors and patients) - with medical learners. She completed the Harvard Macy Institute Art Museum-based Health Professions Education fellowship and is a certified Visual Thinking Strategies facilitator.
