Richard Doan trained in general and child psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh, where he also completed a fellowship in public sector psychiatry. Prioir to moving to Toronto in 2001, he worked on Prince Edward Island and in Windsor, Ontario as a child psychiatrist. Home visiting became his forte in 1998 with his first ACT job with the Chatham-Kent team. In Toronto, he helped found CAMH's Home Intervention for Psychosis (HIP) team, and was a member of the Toronto East General Hospital ACT team for 9 years.
His current ICHA sites are MDOT and Good Shepherd Non Profit Homes. Dr. Doan is a firm believer in community outreach, and this suits his inability to sit still at a desk.
