Dr. Tetyana Tarnavsky, MD, PhD, is the newest attending psychiatrist to join Fuller Hospital’s Partial Hospitalization Program (PHP). The Partial Hospital Program is a structured, short-term intensive outpatient program that provides treatment for those with a mental health disorder or those with a dual diagnosis. The aim of the program is to prevent hospitalization or to serve as a step-down from an inpatient unit as the individual transitions back into the community.

“I am looking forward to working with the caring staff at Fuller Hospital and serving individuals across Southeastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island who are struggling with behavioral health issues,” said Dr. Tarnavsky. “Arbour-Fuller has proven their dedication to providing a healthy community and I look forward to joining the team and continuing that treatment.”

Dr. Tarnavsky brings over fifteen years of psychiatric experience to Fuller Hospital, with multiple peer-reviewed publications concerning behavioral disorder in young persons with computer addiction.

Before joining Arbour-Fuller Hospital, Dr. Tarnavsky was a full-time outpatient psychiatrist at Brockton Neighborhood Health Center. In that position, she served as the psychiatric consultant to primary care physicians and supervised psychiatry residents from the Harvard South Shore Psychiatry Residency Program. Prior to that position, Dr. Tarnavsky was a psychiatry resident at the VA Boston Healthcare Systems at Harvard Medical School. In addition, Dr. Tarnavsky has been a regular lecturer at Harvard Medical School 2014-2016.

“I am delighted to welcome Dr. Tarnavsky to the Fuller family,” said Rachel Legend, CEO of Fuller Hospital. “Her extensive experience in local clinical settings along with her passion for staying up-to-date on the best practices in our field will be a true asset to our patient population and the larger community.”

A resident of Sharon, MA, Dr. Tarnavsky earned her Medical Doctorate degree, Master of Science in Psychiatry, and PhD in Psychiatry from Dnipropetrovsk State Medical Academy in Ukraine. She is a member of the Massachusetts Psychiatric Society, the American Psychiatric Association, and the National Alliance on Mental Illness.
