N.Gregory Hamilton Psychiatrsit AuthorAfter obtaining my undergraduate degree in literature and writing, I attended medical school at Oregon Health and Sciences University.  I completed my psychiatry training at the Menninger School of Psychiatry in Topeka, Kansas and joined the faculty there.  Being a fourth-generation Oregonian, though, I eventually returned with my family to my home state—a great place to live—and joined the faculty of my alma mater, where I became an associate professor and taught psychotherapy for more than a decade before moving to private practice.  I love private practice—no committee meetings, no administration, no lectures—mostly sitting with patients and listening.
